CHICAGO — Lancaster County native Matt Nagy was introduced as head coach of the Chicago Bears on Tuesday afternoon.

Nagy, who most recently served as the Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive coordinator, had a lot to say and many people to thank, including those in his hometown of Manheim.

“We all have our roots and I want to thank everyone back home in the small town of Manheim, Pennsylvania and then Lancaster County for always supporting me,” he said. “Go Barons.”

The Manheim Central graduate continued — telling a story that was, in his words, “too special to not tell.”

“When I showed up for my interview with Mr. McCaskey [chairman of the Bears], he approaches me coming out of the car and he says ‘I know you are from Lancaster’ and asks me if I knew about McCaskey High which is in our division in high school. He said ‘my great grandfather started that school.’ My heart told me — I didn’t say it to him — this is meant to be.”
