Broncos pick Vic Fangio as new head coach

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

Fangio, who spent the last four seasons as the defensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears, will be named the head coach of the Denver Broncos, according to multiple reports Wednesday. The 58-year-old Scranton, PA native coached the Tennessee Titans for three seasons from 2011 to 2013, amassing a 22-26 mark and never reaching the playoffs.

Five years after being passed over for Jim Tomsula, former 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has finally landed an National Football League head coaching job.

Four Chicago defenders were selected to the Pro Bowl under his watch in 2018: pass rusher Khalil Mack, safety Eddie Jackson, lineman Akiem Hicks and cornerback Kyle Fuller. "I don't even want to think about the possibility of him ever leaving, so I'm going to pretend nothing is going on". The 60-year-old coordinator has been with the Bears since 2015 and came over after a few years with Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers.

After news broke, Bears receiver Allen Robinson shared his thoughts on Twitter.

Eagles beat Bears 16-15
No one really seemed to be aware that the kick had been tipped until Hester causally mentioned it during his postgame interview. The Eagles won five of their final six regular-season games. "I feel awful ", Parkey told reporters after the game.

This will also be the biggest decision of Matt Nagy young coaching career. He agreed in principle to become the Buccaneers' new defensive coordinator on a staff with Bruce Arians, under whom he served in Arizona. "I like how he does things". The Broncos conducted a more expansive search than when they hired Kubiak and Vance Joseph, who appeared locks before the process began.

Despite the experience and accolades, Fangio had hardly been considered as a head coach prior to January.

Several Bears players were hoping the Broncos would choose one of Elway's other candidates - Steelers O-line coach Mike Munchak, ex-Colts coach Chuck Pagano, Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores or Rams QBs coach Zac Taylor.

And if the Broncos can't eventually get back on track with Fangio in charge, Elway, having taken the road less traveled in the 2019 coaching cycle and in total control, should start to worry about his own job security.
