Report: Broncos coaching search down to two

Now they will find out at least a little about how Fangio might've worked as a head coach, with Fangio leaving to coach the Denver Broncos and the Broncos looming as a road trip on the Bears 2019 schedule.

This is the first head coaching job for the 60-year-old, but he has more than 30 years of coaching experience in the NFL.

The Denver Broncos have chosen Vic Fangio as their new head coach. Despite an offer from the Green Bay Packers, Fangio stuck around with the Chicago Bears for one more season. "Giving that opportunity, the resources behind him that we can give him, I think it's a great job". Hopefully, the environment he's inheriting won't make him wish he had waited a while longer.

Elway concurred with star cornerback Chris Harris Jr.'s assessment last week that the Broncos need to modernize their offensive and defensive schemes to keep up with teams such as the Rams and Chiefs, who have fully embraced the run-pass option craze and other college concepts. "I feel like the Bears definitely got a defense that can go all the way".

Fangio served as the Bears' defensive coordinator for four seasons.

This will also be the biggest decision of Matt Nagy young coaching career. However, Bowles has not signed a contract yet and was not officially announced to the job in Tampa, meaning he still could accept the role in Chicago. "I like how he does things".

Fangio was also defensive coordinator at Stanford in 2010. That led to Fangio's arrival in Chicago. The Broncos went 11-21 with their last defensive-minded coach that had no previous head-coaching experience. It's why, after Elway sifted through the injuries of the past season, including seven players who had started multiple games on offense who ended the season on injured reserve, the trades of Demaryius Thomas and Aqib Talib, and the close losses in eight games against teams that made this year's playoffs, he still fired Joseph.

It's down to two for the Denver Broncos.
