Denver Broncos hire Bears' Vic Fangio as head coach

REPORT Broncos reach agreement with Vic Fangio to become next head coach

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't announced the hiring.

The Broncos have reached an agreement to name Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio as the team's new coach, according to several reports.

Fangio is well-traveled as a defensive assistant or coordinator in the National Football League, a streak going back to 1986 when he was first hired to coach linebackers for the New Orleans Saints. This will be his first head-coaching gig.

Kubiak coach the Broncos for two seasons and led them to the Super Bowl 50 championship three years ago.

We're down to three head-coaching vacancies in the NFL. He has 20 years of experience as a defensive coordinator.

Fangio takes over a franchise that has won just 11 games in the last two years.

With Joseph out and Fangio in, the Broncos will look to capitalize on the plethora of talent the team has on the defensive side of the ball.

The 2018 season was his best as Fangio guided a defense that ranked No. 1 in the NFL, allowed a league-low 17.7 points per game and led the Bears into the playoffs for the first time in eight years.

This is a team that was built on defense last season.

"He's an evil genius", Mack told NFL.com in November.

"I think the right kind of guy wants to come into a situation like this because he knows what the expectations are and what our expectations have been for a long period of time", Elway said. 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. Bowles has most recently run 3-4 schemes in both NY and Arizona, and Chicago's defensive personnel would be a much better fit than the Bucs, who have run a 4-3 as their base defense since 1990.

Instead, the Bears' season ended earlier than expected and now the man Mack dubbed an "evil genius" will join Miller in Denver.
