Charles Eberflus was born on May 17, 1970, in Toledo, Ohio. He attended Whitmer High School, graduating in 1988. At Toledo, he was a four-year letterman and three-year starting linebacker, earning First Team All-MAC honors in his junior and senior years. He led the team in tackles both years and was the recipient of the Nicholson Award as the team’s Most Valuable Player his senior year. He made 21 tackles against Northern Illinois University, ranking as the fifth-best performance by a Toledo player in a single game in school history. He graduated in 1993 with a degree in education and was inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2004.
He began coaching in 1992 and since then has been a student assistant, graduate assistant, and full-time coach at the University of Toledo, as well as defensive coordinator, defensive backs coach and associate head coach at the University of Missouri. During his time at Missouri, he recruited four-year starting quarterback Brad Smith, defensive back William Moore and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon to Columbia, and helped the Tigers reach the Independence Bowl in 2003. He also guided the Tigers to the Big 12 North Division title in 2007 and 2008 and was twice awarded the national defensive coordinator of the week in 2007.
Matt Eberflus began his NFL coaching career in 2009 as the Linebackers Coach for the Cleveland Browns. In 2011, he followed Rob Ryan to the Dallas Cowboys, joining the staff of head coach Jason Garrett as the Linebackers Coach. In 2013, he was instrumental in helping the team transition to a 4-3 defensive scheme, alongside Rod Marinelli. In 2016, he was promoted to Defensive Passing Game Coordinator and retained his Linebackers Coaching duties. In 2017, his linebacking group accounted for 34% of the team’s tackles and helped the defense rank 8th in total defense (318.1 yards per game), 11th in passing defense (214.1 yards per game), and 1st in rushing defense (104.0 yards per game). Eberflus is highly regarded in the NFL and is an experienced and successful coach.
After initially being hired by Josh McDaniels to become the defensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts, Eberflus remained with the team when Frank Reich was appointed head coach. Under Eberflus’ guidance, the Colts defense improved dramatically in 2018, ranking in the top 10 of both scoring defense and total defense. He also improved their rushing defense from 26th to 8th and their passing defense from 28th to 16th. After interviewing with the Cleveland Browns for their head coaching vacancy in 2019, Eberflus was eventually hired by the Chicago Bears as their 17th head coach in 2022. He won his head coaching debut with the Bears, leading them to a 19-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
