Vic Fangio Named Denver Broncos Head Coach

Vic Fangio

On Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that Fangio has reached an agreement with the team to become their next head coach.

It's down to two for the Denver Broncos. The Bears promptly signed Fangio as their new defensive coordinator.

Fangio enjoyed a stellar run this previous year with the Bears under head coach Matt Nagy. Denver's defense should quickly return to relevance under Fangio and Elway will help the coach identify a promising offensive coordinator.

The team's head-coach search was led by general manager John Elway, who narrowed it down to two candidates: Fangio and Mike Munchak.

While he was a great coordinator it will be interesting to see who was more responsible for the uptick this season, Mack and Roquan Smith or the evolution of Fangio's defense. He's built dominant defenses in different eras, successfully adapting to changes in personnel, philosophies and style.

Since arriving with John Fox's coaching staff in 2015, Fangio directed the turnaround of the Bears defense that ranked 31st in points allowed per game in 2014 (27.6) to first in 2018 (17.7).

Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks echoed those thoughts. I want the guys that understand the game, they understand Xs and Os but also have the ability to lead men.

Fangio, on the other hand, has more than 35 years of coaching experience.

The Bears' playoff run came to a shocking end Sunday night when Cody Parkey's last-second field-goal attempt was tipped and bounced off the left upright and the crossbar for his 11th miss of the season, sealing Philadelphia's 16-15 escape in the wild-card round. The Bears defense was the most feared in the National Football League, and the Broncos are already quite strong on that side with a unit that's anchored by one of the NFL's best pass-rushing units. "They get takeaways, they play tight coverage and they got a great run defense", Miller said.
