Vic Fangio to be hired as the Broncos’ new head coach

Vic Fangio to be hired as the Broncos’ new head coach

It's down to two for the Denver Broncos.

The gig is Fangio's first as head coach after 19 years of serving as a defensive coordinator in the NFL.

The Broncos have reached an agreement with Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio to become the team's next head coach, ESPN reported , citing unidentified sources. The Broncos fired Joseph on December 31 after his second season as head coach. Brought in by new head coach John Fox, he introduced the "3-4" defense to the team, and his unit made yearly progress with the team even though their record didn't indicate it.

Gregg Williams was promoted to interim head coach , while Kitchens was bumped to offensive coordinator. Kitchens and Austin coached together in Arizona from 2007-2009 where he was the defensive back's coach.

Zigging while everyone else zags, the Broncos sought a general in Fangio who could run his defense, leaving the offense to Gary Kubiak and everything else up to John Elway as Denver looks to snap its three-season playoff-less streak. Fangio represents the first defensive-minded coach to get a head-coaching job during this hiring cycle after one-fourth of the league canned their coaches and mostly started looking for 'The Next Sean McVay'. Kubiak retired after five seasons with the Broncos and a 25-year coaching career following the 2017 season citing health reasons. He did a strong job of putting together a staff past year, but Fangio and the defense was already in place. "Again, I hope that we can hire a guy that can be here for the next 10 years, 15 years". With the Bears since 2015, Fangio also held the same role with San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts and Carolina Panthers. He's built dominant defenses in different eras, successfully adapting to changes in personnel, philosophies and style.

Fangio was also defensive coordinator at Stanford in 2010. Most recently, Fangio transformed the Bears defense from the No. 24-ranked unit in 2016 into the No. 1 overall defense in the National Football League in 2018. This season, he orchestrated the top defense in the NFL. In that season the Bears acquired Khalil Mack and saw their defense go from good to great.
