Broncos Hire Vic Fangio As New Head Coach

Elway Fangio ‘as good of a football coach as you can find’	 	 	 			Vic Fangio

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

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. Kubiak, the former Broncos coach who led them to Super Bowl 50 before retiring, was likely always going to be forced upon the next Denver head coach (and for good reason). So they need the Fangio hire to work and Kubiak's role in the offense to be productive, because the Broncos are in danger of losing much of the luster they've worked so hard to create. He did a strong job of putting together a staff a year ago, but Fangio and the defense was already in place. The next task Fangio assumed was revamping a Chicago Bears defense that ranked No. 30 after the 2014 season.

Elway has famously been unable to figure out his franchise's quarterback since Peyton Manning retired following the 2015 season.

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.

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.

"He's an evil genius", Mack told NFL.com in November. I want the guys that understand the game, they understand X's and O's but also have the ability to lead men.

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.

With the National Football League becoming an offensive showcase of fireworks and big plays, having a stout defense has almost become a lost art.

"The Bears have been doing it right". "I feel like the Bears definitely got a defense that can go all the way".
