Broncos Hire Vic Fangio As New Head Coach

And maybe that's not a bad thing, after all.

Fangio enjoyed a stellar run this a year ago with the Bears under head coach Matt Nagy.

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.

After serving as the Defensive Coordinator for the Chicago Bears, a team that finished with the best defense in the league, Vic Fangio is moving on as he has been named the next head coach of the Denver Broncos. The fans calling for Joseph's firing began voicing their complaints early on this season and continued speaking up until general manager John Elway gave Joseph the boot following the team's final game of the season.

Fangio became a popular head coaching candidate after consistently fielding stellar defenses over the greater part of the past decade. The first being Fangio while the other was Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak, according to ESPN.

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

Fangio has been an National Football League assistant for 32 years and for 34 years overall, including two years in the old USFL.

This is a team that was built on defense last season.

While he was a great coordinator it will be interesting to see who was more responsible for the uptick this season, Mack and Roquan Smith or the evolution of Fangio's defense.

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.

Expect the Broncos to stick with their 3-4 defense.

The Bears are slated to travel to Denver for a road matchup on their 2019 schedule.
