Chuck Pagano Hired as DC

Recommended Posts

Via Biggs and a ton of other sources...

Have to say if Nagy is looking is looking for someone to run that side of the ball on their own there was no one better out there.

Very happy about this. Not sure how aggressive he will be, but I have faith given the talent we have he will do great here.

I wanted Bowles when news came about as Vic went to DEN, but Pagano is one hell of a hire. Awesome job.

I was hoping for a possible in house hire, but Pagano has a strong resume and his players seem to love him.  Nice work again from Pace/Nagy

After losing Fangio this was probably the best option for the Bears besides Bowles.

Easy choice would have been to just hire Donatell but I commend Pace and Nagy for not just settling for the more convenient choice due to continuity. 

Donatell is a fine coach but Pagano was part of a Super Bowl winning team in the Ravens and has also had success in the playoffs as a head coach with the Colts. Love this hire.  Let's just hope he sticks around for more than a year.

I'm always a fan of getting DC's and OC's that have HC experience.

RT @wiltfongjr: Will there be a drop off in production from the 2018 #Bears defense to the 2019 version? It's possible, but it's not a given. 

A Thread ⬇️

In 2010 the Ravens defense was ranked 6th in DVOA, and in 2011 Chuck Pagano took over as defensive coordinator and it improved to 1st.

RT @wiltfongjr: In 2010 the Ravens’ defense allowed 16.9 ppg, and in 2011 with Pagano as the new defensive coordinator they allowed 16.6. 

BUT

If you take away the 3 return TDs and the 2 defensive TDs they allowed from the total points, then Pagano’s defense only gave up 14.8 ppg! #Bears

RT @wiltfongjr: In 2010 the Ravens were 15th in the #NFL by allowing 38% of 3rd down conversions, but in 2011 they improved to 2nd under Chuck Pagano at 32%.

In 2010 the Ravens had 27 sacks (27th), but in 2011 with Pagano now running their D, they jumped up to 48 which was 3rd. #Bears

I love tapping that Ravens' defensive pipeline. Those dudes are having success in the NFL. Good hire, and @BearDownTexas I believe you'll see a more aggressive defense under Pagano than we did under Fangio.
