Broncos hire Bears DC Vic Fangio as new head coach, reports say

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

The three who won AFC West titles during their tenures - Shanahan, John Fox and Gary Kubiak - each had long National Football League résumés, with two decades in coaching and Kubiak also having spent nine years as a player - before the Broncos hired them for the head-coaching job. The Broncos fired Joseph on December 31 after his second season as head coach.

Former 49ers and Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has agreed to become the next Denver Broncos head coach. He was the Titans' head coach from 2011 to 2013.

Fangio served as the Bears' defensive coordinator for four seasons. Elway liked Joseph and met with him nearly daily to talk about the roster and where the team stood. The Broncos collected 44 sacks, a spike from 33 in 2017, and netted 28 takeaways, fifth best, and 11 more than last season.

"The different voice, and we both decided to make the change", Elway said.

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. But it's a tough league, and this league is about parity.

A familiar face to San Francisco 49ers fans is headed to Denver. The offense continued a three-year long slump. That will be tough with a new mind in the building. The interim head coach, Gregg Williams, meanwhile, lost out on both the top job and his defensive coordinator job, being fired Wednesday, according to ESPN. Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Case Keenum were all next in a line of quarterbacks not named Manning that Elway failed to win with, and the inability to get the position right factored into Vance Joseph's firing after just two years as head coach.

Kubiak coach the Broncos for two seasons and led them to the Super Bowl 50 championship three years ago.
