The Denver Broncos reportedly want to interview Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.
As time passes, names continue to float around for the opening head coaching position of the Denver Broncos.
One of those names is Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.
Denver obviously has an opening after firing Vance Joseph after two seasons.
The Chicago Bears are currently preparing for their playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Broncos are unable to contact and interview Fangio until the game is over.
It would also make sense if Fangio declines to interview with the team until the Bears are out of the playoffs, or after the Super Bowl—if they make it that far.
Fangio, 60, has been the defensive coordinator of the Bears since 2015. Prior to joining Chicago, he coached at 11 different places. He has been the defensive coordinator of eight of those teams, including the 49ers, Texans, Colts, and Panthers of the NFL.
With the Bears in 2018, Fangio’s defense has recorded 50 sacks, 18 forced fumbles, 27 interceptions, and five defensive touchdowns.
He also spent time as defensive coordinator of Milford (MT) Academy, and Dunmore (PA) High School.
Fangio is just one of the many names that will be reported as possible candidates for the team’s head coaching position.
Later on, when a coach has been selected and hired, we will learn the fate of the rest of the Broncos coaching staff. There are going to be changes to the coaching staff and players. There’s no doubt about that.
For right now, the name of the next head coach of the Denver Broncos remains to be speculation.
I think the team should take its time deciding on who to hire as the next head coach of the Broncos. Rushing into a decision is a very risky move.
They are going to have to hire the right guy this offseason in order to avoid going through this same cycle again in a couple of years.
Hopefully, whoever the Broncos hire will bring in the right players and coaches to succeed, therefore sticking around for many years to come.
