Chicago Bears defensive coordinator and former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has decided to retire, league sources told Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago, confirming multiple reports.

The Bears are likely to retain head coach Matt Nagy and general manger Ryan Pace, sources said.

Pagano, 60, spent just two seasons in Chicago after a six-year run as head coach of the Colts. He was hired by the Bears on Jan. 11, 2019, to replace decorated defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who left to become head coach of the Denver Broncos.

The fates of Nagy and Pace had been uncertain after the Bears lost eight of 11 to end the year and finished 1-7 versus playoff teams in 2020.

Nagy -- named NFL Coach of the Year in 2018 -- has guided the Bears to two postseason berths in the past three years.

Pace just completed his sixth year as Chicago's general manager.
