Bears DC Vic Fangio to become Broncos head coach

Vic Fangio has had that kind of impact on the Bears' defense over the past four seasons and that hasn't been lost on those in the National Football League interested in giving him a chance to lead a team for the first time in his career.

Denver completed its interview with Fangio on Monday, a day after the Bears were eliminated from the playoffs. It ended abruptly for Fangio on Sunday as the team with the No. 1-ranked defense went one-and-done in the playoffs for the first time since the 2011 Pittsburgh Steelers. The decision, on the surface, may seem perplexing.

He replaces Vance Joseph, who posted the franchise's first back-to-back losing seasons since 1971-72 and was sacked on New Year's Eve with an 11-21 record.

Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who played a leading role in the revival of Chicago's identity over four seasons, will be the next head coach of the Denver Broncos, according to reports late Wednesday morning.

With Fangio in the fold, Gary Kubiak could serve as his offensive coordinator or as an assistant coach. In each of the final three years of his 49ers tenure, Fangio's defenses finished in the top-three for scoring. "I was doing my best sell job and this happened".

The Ghanaian passport has been ranked 77th strongest in a world ranking of passports which was dominated by Asian countries. Irish passport holders can go to 184 destinations visa-free, but require a visa before travelling to 42 locations.

"I love playing for that guy", Hicks said. "I think there are a lot of things that go into a head coach that it's a feel thing".

Over the last 20 years, he's been the defensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans - one year with Stanford - the San Francisco 49ers and most recently with the Bears from 2015-2018.

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

Broncos star linebacker Von Miller suggested last month that the Bears' defense could lead Chicago to the Super Bowl title much as Denver's defense had three years ago - even in an age of potent offenses capitalizing on ever friendlier rules to run up scores.

Despite the experience and accolades, Fangio had hardly been considered as a head coach prior to January.
