Broncos Defenders ‘Excited’ For Fangio, Who Has ‘Tough Defensive Demeanor’

Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has reportedly reached an agreement to become the next head coach of the Broncos, according to Adam Schefter and Dan Graziano of ESPN.

Elway said when he began his search for his fourth head coach in six seasons that he values experience but also recognizes the need to modernize the Broncos' offensive and defensive schemes to keep up with the run-pass option craze that has swept through the National Football League and rendered traditional systems antiquated.

The report noted the deal will be for four years and include a team option for a fifth.

Fangio, 60, is well-regarded in NFL circles and led a Bears defense that paced the league in takeaways (36), rushing yards allowed (80.0) and points per game (17.7) this season. The next task Fangio assumed was revamping a Chicago Bears defense that ranked No. 30 after the 2014 season.

The team began searching for a new coach on December 31 after Vance Joseph was sacked from the position.

It's down to two for the Denver Broncos.

Just hours after it was widely reported that former New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles would be joining Bruce Arians with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it appears he'll have another potential destination. But CEO Jed York instead went with Tomsula, who was sacked after one season with a 5-11 record.

"I'm excited, especially as a defensive guy". He previously served as defensive coordinator for the 49ers, Texans, Colts and Panthers.

When word got out that Elway had chosen Fangio, Bears cornerback Prince Amukamar a tweeted the hashtag "curse words" and Chicago wide receiver Allen Robinson II tweeted the broken heart emoji.

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. He's spent the last four seasons as a position coach with the Steelers.
