When John Fox held his first voluntary veteran minicamp three years ago, he did so with only two familiar faces still on staff " receivers coach Mike Groh and outside linebackers coach Clint Hurtt.

When Matt Nagy starts his own three-day camp Tuesday, hell do so with a whopping seven " including his entire defensive staff " returning.

Still, the change at Halas Hall feels even more significant than it did three years ago, as Nagy is ushering in a modern offense not seen during Foxs tenure.

Heres what well be watching when the team begins its minicamp:

Scouting the coach. Tuesday will offer the first glimpse into Nagys head coaching style. Hes never run an NFL practice, and only spent two years as an offensive coordinator with the Chiefs. Will he be like Marc Trestman, who ran from drill to drill, often to encourage his players to do the same? Or like Fox, who often delegated to his assistants?

Nagys ability to connect with players on the field will be on display, as will his ability to explain his offense. While hes worked with consultant Brad Childress before, the rest of the teams offensive coaches have never coached alongside Nagy.

Last month, general manager Ryan Pace said Nagy vowed to run a demanding training camp in Bourbonnais " A physical camp, a tough camp, an energetic camp, he said " but the coach will be limited by league rules this week. The minicamp will resemble the mandatory minicamp held in June, with helmets and some team work allowed.
