Broncos coaching search down to two

Broncos coaching search down to two

Former 49ers and Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has agreed to become the next Denver Broncos head coach. Fangio agreed to a four-year deal with a fifth-year option, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported.

The team's head-coach search was led by general manager John Elway, who narrowed it down to two candidates: Fangio and Mike Munchak. The decision, on the surface, may seem perplexing. Brought in by new head coach John Fox, he introduced the "3-4" defense to the team, and his unit made yearly progress with the team even though their record didn't indicate it.

A career defensive assistant of 32 National Football League seasons, Fangio was lauded and respected by his players, who were thrilled to see him get the chance for a head coaching interview. Former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak is expected to move from his role in the front office to become Fangio's offensive coordinator.

Denver completed its interview with Fangio on Monday, a day after the Bears were eliminated from the playoffs. "Again, I hope that we can hire a guy that can be here for the next 10 years, 15 years".

The Eagles had taken the lead when Nick Foles hit Golden Tate with a 2-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 56 seconds remaining against the NFL's stingiest defense. Both have bright futures, but Taylor and Flores might be better off gaining more experience before they're seriously considered for head coach jobs. But the Broncos have had too much change in recent years, too many new offenses, too much turnover at the coordinator spots and too much uncertainty at quarterback for a franchise that had prided itself on churning out wins for so long.

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

Now Fangio will be in charge of a Broncos defense led by star players Von Miller and Chris Harris.

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