Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio talks with reporters on January 3, 2018 before the NFC Wild Card playoff game.
The Vic Fangio era has begun for the Denver Broncos.
According to multiple reports, Fangio will be the Broncos new head coach.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network and Orange & Blue 760 first reported the news.
Fangio has been an NFL assistant since 1986. He has spent time with the Saints, Panthers, Colts, Texans, Ravens, 49ers and, most recently, the Bears. He has been Chicago’s defensive coordinator since 2015.
He has also served as defensive coordinator for the 49ers (2011-2014), Texans (2002-2005), Colts (1999-2001) and Panthers (1995-1998), along with Stanford University (2010).
After the Bears fired head coach John Fox following the 2017 season, Fangio interviewed for the team’s head coaching position but lost out to current coach Matt Nagy. Fangio then agreed to a three-year contract to remain with Chicago as defensive coordinator.
