It was reported at the end of the season that Brad Childress had told the Chiefs that he was retiring.

Childress was the assistant head coach for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Well, that retirement didn’t last long.

Childress will join the Chicago Bears as an offensive consultant with head coach Matt Nagy. Nagy was the offensive coordinator with the Chiefs last season.

‘‘Every day he was telling stories and being there for me, being there with me,’’ Nagy said via the Chicago Sun Times. ‘‘He has a special place in my heart, and I just thank him from the bottom of my heart.’’

It’s a return to the NFC North for Childress. He served as the Vikings head coach from 2006-10 and amassed a 39-35 record, making the playoffs in 2008 and 2009.
