After four years as the Head Coach of the Chicago Bears, Nagy goes back to Kansas City where he worked for four seasons as the Quarterbacks Coach and, later, one season as the Offensive Coordinator. He also reunites with Andy Reid, to whom he served as an intern and assistant at the start of his coaching career in the Philadelphia Eagles.
Recently, Mike Kafka was hired by the New York Giants to be their new Offensive Coordinator, which left a spot open for Nagy in the coaching staff. The Chiefs also re-signed Eric Bienemy to continue as their Offensive Coordinator for one more year.
This past season, the team won the AFC West division and finished second in the conference. In the postseason, they were eliminated in the Championship Game by the Cincinnati Bengals and now prepare for another season as one of the favorites to win the Lombardi trophy.
