Instead, the former OR coach is going to give the National Football League a try, just as Kelly did after leaving the Ducks.

Helfrich was the offensive coordinator at OR under Chip Kelly from 2009-12 then became head coach when Kelly departed to coach the Eagles.

Rather than continue to be paid in installments through the end of that deal, Helfrich in May agreed to be paid $8,053,830 by UO, according to documents related to the settlement released as part of a records request from The Oregonian/OregonLive.

The 44-year-old Helfrich worked with Tennessee Titans quarterback and former Heisman Trophy victor Marcus Mariota in college.

Helfrich will not call plays with the Bears, as new head coach Matt Nagy has already said he will handle those responsibilities.

Chicago's offense features quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the second overall pick in last year's draft, who passed for 2,193 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions as a rookie.

The news figures to be well-received by Bears players, who lobbied for him to stay. Tabor was Chicago's assistant special teams coach from 2008-2010.

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy stands on the field watching warm ups before an NFL football game against the Dallas Cowboys, in Arlington, Texas, Nov. 5, 2017.

Nagy's offensive staff is coming together quickly. But he's the second arrival from the college ranks, joining former Notre Dame offensive line coach Harry Hiestand, whose securing by Nagy on Thursday was met with rave reviews. There is a good chance the Bears will retain quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone and tight ends coach Frank Smith is a possibility to remain.

It also signals the Bears' need to add speed and dynamic playmakers after the catch to an offense that was severely lacking in both areas, except for rookie sensation Tarik Cohen, whose upside is exciting with the new creative offensive minds on board.
