    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy has received another big-time honor, being named the NFC Coach of the Year as part of the 49th annual NFL 101 Awards.

    Nagy, who led the Bears to their first playoff appearance since 2011 and helped guide the team to a 12-4 record, was honored by a group of 101 different NFL writers and experts for his tremendous first season with the team.

    New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Year by the committee, and Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald was named Defensive Player of the Year.
