(670 The Score) New Bears head coach Matt Nagy has spent the last two weeks at Halas Hall installing his offense and taking charge of the team. Starting Tuesday, he can put the plan into action.

The Bears will hold a three-day voluntary veteran minicamp in Lake Forest, an offering for teams with a new head coach. It's a brief serving of football activities amid a busy offseason program.

By now, Nagy has begun to work with 23-year-old quarterback Mitchell Trubisky on the new playbook, building an offense that the team hopes to maximize the strengths of Trubisky, who is on record as saying he feels "built" for Nagy's schemes.

Mastering this offense won't happen until further down the road with the offseason program, with OTAs and another mini-camp still ahead before training camp begins in Bourbonnais on July 20.

What's most important in these next three days is for Nagy to begin establishing his practice pace and methods, which is the reason this minicamp is offered to teams with new coaches. The details that Nagy feels necessary for his practices will be put to use Tuesday, and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will also continue his work with his unit.

While the Bears will later identify the fits around Trubisky and the best ways to maximize their new additions in the offense, Tuesday offers the first chance to set the basic foundation for Nagy's vision that he aims to to instill.
