The fluff and circumstance of flashy introductions are over at Halas Hall. With the official impression-making unveiling of Matt Nagy as the Bears' head coach on Tuesday, it's now time for the 39-year-old to get to work in turning Chicago back into a contender.

There's a lot to get to in a lengthy laundry list for the Andy Reid disciple in Nagy. From putting together a coaching staff, to unlocking Mitchell Trubisky's potential. But first: what kind of leader and coach can the Bears expect? What are some concerns about the youthful sideline roamer?

To help answer these questions, former official Chiefs reporter and current Chiefs writer, Pete Sweeney of Arrowhead Pride hopped on the awaited return of WCG Radio to break down Chicago's Nagy addition in full. (Pre-press conference)
