Broncos hire Vic Fangio as head coach
 
https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...as-head-coach/

Apologies folks, looks like our crack news team got this in the donk megathread. Well, maybe this is worthy of it's own thread?


The Broncos have their new head coach, and the Bears need a new defensive coordinator.

Vic Fangio has been hired as the Broncos’ next head coach, ESPN reports.

Fangio has been the Bears’ defensive coordinator for the last four seasons and was the 49ers’ defensive coordinator for four seasons before that. He’s previously been a defensive coordinator with the Panthers, Colts and Texans. He has a good reputation as a defensive coach.

There was some talk, however, that he might not be a strong candidate for a head coach, as he hasn’t been one before and, at age 60, he could have faced some age discrimination in a league where younger head coaches seem to be all the rage.

Fangio beat out Mike Munchak for the top job in Denver. Now he’ll take over a Broncos team that has had back-to-back disappointing seasons. And the Bears will hope they can find a coordinator who can be as effective in Chicago as Fangio was.

Lololol they just needed a defensive minded guy to turn it all around. Looking forward to the hiring another turd in three years.

This seems like it could be a decent short term fix, but I’m not sure beyond that. Elway still has to find a QB, still has to find good players much more than he has so far.

Yawn. Still have a nothing at QB. Until they don't, it won't matter.

Superturtle 01-09-2019 11:33 AM

LMAO Fangio was so desperate for the job he had to let Elway hire his staff for him.

Eleazar 01-09-2019 11:34 AM

LMAO

Good luck to pillowbiterio and the Cheating Donks.

I am sure he will get used to losing to the Chiefs twice a year, just as his predecessors did.

Nothing will fix that team until they find a half way decent QB. With all of Elways failures at finding a competent qb (other than the obvious Manning pick up), I dont have much faith that Elway will ever have any success again.

Probably the best coach Elway could have picked. Unfortunately. He has a lot of fire.

Why Not? 01-09-2019 11:39 AM

Everytime the Eagles needed to score, they scored. Mack was 100% invisible in the biggest game of the year. I look forward to Radio Part 2 in Denver.

Smart move. It's a defensive league now.

Prison Bitch 01-09-2019 11:41 AM

Two more 6-10s and he will be sent packing, too.

Mr_Tomahawk 01-09-2019 11:41 AM

Not a bad hire or coaching staff.

...doesn't mean shit until they find a QB.

O.city 01-09-2019 11:42 AM

I don't know that it's that crazy, but it's funny that he's essentially trying to win the way the Chiefs did for so long.

When the Donks had the offense in the division the Chiefs seemed to always try and build to beat it with d coaches and such.
