New Broncos coach Vic Fangio brings track record of success to Denver

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

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - In hiring Vic Fangio, the Denver Broncos are returning to a formula they trust.

After stints with five National Football League teams from 1986-2009, Fangio left in 2010 to become the defensive coordinator for the Stanford Cardinal.

Past year when Matt Nagy was hired as head coach a big question was whether or not Vic Fangio would have stayed.

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

The Broncos are looking for their fifth head coach in the last 10 seasons.

Zigging while everyone else zags, the Broncos sought a general in Fangio who could run his defense, leaving the offense to Gary Kubiak and everything else up to John Elway as Denver looks to snap its three-season playoff-less streak.

Fangio became a popular head coaching candidate after consistently fielding stellar defenses over the greater part of the past decade.

Naby Keita still adapting to life at Liverpool, says Klopp
A little injury here and there and a little setback, but he's a fantastic player and I'm really happy to have him here. We came through the intense period now somehow OK, but of course we have to make changes.

Elway concurred with star cornerback Chris Harris Jr.'s assessment last week that the Broncos need to modernize their offensive and defensive schemes to keep up with teams such as the Rams and Chiefs, who have fully embraced the run-pass option craze and other college concepts.

Fangio has 19 years of coordinating experience for the Panthers, Colts, Texans, 49ers and Bears.

Elway has famously been unable to figure out his franchise's quarterback since Peyton Manning retired following the 2015 season. They ended the year 5-3 and scored below 20 points just twice - it happened four times in the first eight games under Haley.

Fangio was also defensive coordinator at Stanford in 2010.

Fangio has turned Bears" defense into a ferocious unit, one that has echoed the legendary "85 Bears squad.

"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. 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.
