The trio joins new offensive line coach Harry Hiestand as part of the team's staff under new coach Matt Nagy, who was hired on Monday. A fresh perspective like Helfrich's, rooted in the college game, can only help turn things around.

Helfrich, 44, spent his year out of coaching as a college football analyst for Fox Sports.

Helfrich didn't call plays as Oregon's offensive coordinator and he won't in Chicago.

As much as the Bears sought a fresh voice and new approach for the offense and quarterback Mitch Trubisky, they were pretty happy with how the defense has come along.

Matt Nagy responds to a question after Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace introduced him as the club's 16th head coach in franchise history during an NFL football news conference Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018, in Lake Forest, Ill.

With Fangio coming back, it's likely the Bears will consider retaining multiple position coaches on that side of the ball, with Nagy having the final say. So the move to a young, offensive-minded head coach as a direct opposite to John Fox was obvious with the hiring of Nagy, and he may have laid out how he wanted Helfrich as his offensive coordinator during his interview.

Helfrich was also reportedly offered the offensive coordinator position at UCLA by Chip Kelly-an especially enticing proposition for southern OR football fans given Chase Cota's commitment.

Helfrich becomes the second coordinator to be hired after the Bears named Chris Tabor as special teams coordinator on Wednesday.

London has spent nine seasons in the National Football League, the past four as the running backs coach for the Houston Texans.

The Bears finished 5-11 in 2017 and have missed the postseason in 10 of the last 11 years. He returns to the Windy City after serving as an offensive assistant with the Bears from 2007-09. They have resided in last in the NFC North four straight seasons.
