After a disappointing 8-8 season, the Chicago Bears made some sweeping changes to the offensive side of the ball.
According to WGN Adam Hoge, the Bears have decided to fire offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, as well as offensive line coach Harry Hiestand.

The Bears Make Offensive Changes, Keeping Trubisky as QB1
Bears general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy met with the media at 10:30 AND Tuesday morning, and were not on committee when asked about whether they would make any coaching changes. It didn’t take long for them to do just that.
The Bears see their full offense on 2019. They are averaging 17.5 points per game, and their running game never gets off the ground. They are averaging 91.1 yards rushing per game despite flows from rookie running back David Montgomery.
They have shown tremendous lack of self-discipline by their special teams unit, as well, with Kevin Pierre-Louis running the kick not once, but twice this year. Both opportunities resulted in touchdowns for their opponents, and both Bears are worth an important importance.
