Bears taking a different approach with new coaching staff

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) It's apparent the coaching change to Matt Nagy will mean anything but business as usual for the Chicago Bears on offense.

Whether it's hiring former Oregon coach Mark Helfrich, coming from an up-tempo college attack, as offensive coordinator, or quarterback Mitchell Trubisky running Nagy's pet run-pass options, the Bears anticipate becoming less predictable than under former coach John Fox.

Nagy, former Kansas City offensive coordinator, is still completing his coaching staff, and the most surprising hire so far was bringing in Helfrich to help revive the league's 30th-ranked attack.
