Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy is going to be coaching in his first playoff game this weekend, and he’s intimately familiar with the quarterback who will be opposing his squad at Soldier Field.

Nagy, who has worked for the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs in his NFL career, was the offensive coordinator in Kansas City when current Eagles QB Nick Foles played for the team in 2016.

Not only did Nagy get to coach Foles during that part of his career, but he went one step further: he loaned the quarterback his car during training camp.

When asked about the condition of the car when he got it back from Foles, Nagy praised his former quarterback’s cleanliness.

“(It was) fairly clean,” he said. “You know, he put my backrest too far back because he’s like 6-foot-9, but he took good care of it.”

Nagy also praised Foles as a person, saying that he has “tons of respect” for the quarterback.

“Nick is about as good of a human being as you’ll find,” he said. “You want to talk about people that do things the right way, somebody that cares about others, (that’s him).”

Foles and the Eagles will try to start another Super Bowl run on Sunday when they head to Chicago to face the Bears. Kick-off is slated for 3:40 p.m. and the game will air on NBC.
