Denver Broncos hire Bears' Vic Fangio as head coach

Denver Broncos hire Bears' Vic Fangio as head coach”

But Fangio remained in Chicago, where his impressive overhaul of the Bears defense has now led him to his first National Football League head coaching job.

The Denver Broncos have chose to go all in on their stronger side of the roster with the news that they're hiring Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio to be their new head coach. He's spent the last four seasons as a position coach with the Steelers. "If he wants to be a head coach one day, I want him to take a job and be a head coach". Hopefully, the environment he's inheriting won't make him wish he had waited a while longer.

"I love playing for that guy", Hicks said.

Before the Bears, he served as defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers from 2011 to 2014, he held the same title for the Houston Texans (2002-2005), Indianapolis Colts (1999-2001) and Carolina Panthers (1995-1998).

Former Jets coach Todd Bowles, a longtime friend of Nagy's, could also be in play as a candidate.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't announced the hiring. "What he does defensively, but on top of that, too, I think he's such a great human being. Those are two things that I look for".

Fangio has never been a head coach at any level. Much like Bruce Arians, who was hired by the Buccaneers yesterday, Fangio is an older coach with new-school ideas and a knack for relating to his players and getting them to play at their best. That led to Fangio's arrival in Chicago. The Broncos collected 44 sacks, a spike from 33 in 2017, and netted 28 takeaways, fifth best, and 11 more than last season. It's why, after Elway sifted through the injuries of the past season, including seven players who had started multiple games on offense who ended the season on injured reserve, the trades of Demaryius Thomas and Aqib Talib, and the close losses in eight games against teams that made this year's playoffs, he still fired Joseph. The group is led by Pro Bowl pass rusher Von Miller.
