Bears DC Vic Fangio to become Broncos head coach

Vic Fangio

It's down to two for the Denver Broncos.

After stints with five National Football League teams from 1986-2009, Fangio left in 2010 to become the defensive coordinator for the Stanford Cardinal.

We're down to three head-coaching vacancies in the NFL.

After serving as the Defensive Coordinator for the Chicago Bears, a team that finished with the best defense in the league, Vic Fangio is moving on as he has been named the next head coach of the Denver Broncos.

Vance Joseph was sacked on December 31 after he produced an unimpressive 11-21 record during his tenure as head coach of the Broncos. Fangio, age sixty, spent the past four seasons as the defensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears.

Fangio was one of just two internal candidates interviewed for the 49ers' head coach vacancy following the 2014 season - a job that eventually went to Jim Tomsula, who served as Fangio's defensive line coach. He did a strong job of putting together a staff past year, but Fangio and the defense was already in place.

He replaces Vance Joseph, who posted the franchise's first back-to-back losing seasons since 1971-72 and was sacked on New Year's Eve with an 11-21 record.

Elway concurred with star cornerback Chris Harris Jr.'s assessment last week that the Broncos need to modernize their offensive and defensive schemes to keep up with teams such as the Rams and Chiefs, who have fully embraced the run-pass option craze and other college concepts.

Fangio has 19 years of coordinating experience for the Panthers, Colts, Texans, 49ers and Bears. Elway refuses to use the word "rebuilding", but the team has multiple issues to address. I want the guys that understand the game, they understand Xs and Os but also have the ability to lead men. In six of his past nine seasons as coordinator for the 49ers and Bears, Fangio has seen his defenses finish in the top 10 in both of those categories. He's led the Bears' defense since 2015.
