Mitch Trubisky will be mentored by a former Arena Football League and Chiefs quarterbacks coach. Nagy played six seasons for the AFL’s New York Dragons (2002), Carolina Cobras (2004), Georgia Force (2005-06) and Columbus Destroyers (2007-08), passing for 18,866 yards and 374 touchdowns.

Nagy still holds several school passing records at the University of Delaware, such as throwing for 556 yards in a 1998 game against Connecticut. Nagy also quarterbacked the Manheim Central High School Barons to back-to-back state finals in 1994 and ’95.

Nagy-ing question

In 2007, the then-Columbus Destroyers quarterback told the Columbus Dispatch that his last name had been pronounced NEH-gee and NAG-ee, though according to Pennsylvania Dutch tradition, it’s supposed to be NAHZJ-ee. "Either way," Nagy said at the time. "In high school, it was NEH-gee. In college, it was NAG-ee. Now we don't know what it is.” The Chiefs media guide doesn’t list a pronunciation, though Nagy told the Dispatch he goes by NEH-gee.

Nagy (How do you say NAHZJ-ee) sounds like the very right coach for a Chicago Bears team that really wants to cultivate their quarterback to a franchise level. Mitchell Trubisky I believe has that potential and this fella here seems like he can get the job done. I always liked John Fox (despite being horrible at the challenge flag), but when you're a defensive-minded coach with a team that needs some serious offensive coaching then you have to ride those winds of change.

But onto more pressing matters, and by that I mean as to who Nagy looks like if two celebrities had a magical baby together. We did it once with Packers' back-up "Dirty Joe" Callahan, let's keep this trend a-truckin' with "NAHZJ" (which I think if you say Nas, but subtract the "s" and add a "jah" sound then you're on the right track - oooo, more math, fun):
