Bears DC Vic Fangio to become Broncos head coach

Kitchens was one of several candidates to interview for the job, including the Minnesota Vikings' interim OC Kevin Stefanski, Saints assistant head coach/tight ends coach Dan Campbell and former Detroit Lions boss Jim Caldwell. 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.

The hires mean that only the Jets, Dolphins and Bengals remain in the hunt for their next head coach.

He replaces Vance Joseph, who posted the franchise's first back-to-back losing seasons since 1971-72 and was sacked on New Year's Eve with an 11-21 record.

The Denver Broncos have made a decision to go all in on their stronger side of the roster with the news that they're hiring Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio to be their new head coach.

After the team fired Joseph, the Broncos began a coaching search that included Vic Fangio and former Titans head coach Mike Munchak. The 49ers aren't expected to play the Broncos during the regular season until 2022 after playing them in December (a 20-14 victory), though they could play in the preseason as the Broncos are a regular exhibition opponent.

Fangio comes to the Broncos from the Chicago Bears, where he was defensive coordinator since 2015.

And all three worked on Mike Shanahan's staff, learning the offensive principles the Broncos already have with Gary Kubiak, who led the Broncos to their third Super Bowl win and will direct the offense for Fangio. He helped Chicago star Khalil Mack adapt quickly to his defensive scheme after being acquired in a trade from the Raiders just prior to last season.

Fangio was also defensive coordinator at Stanford in 2010.

"I think the right kind of guy wants to come into a situation like this because he knows what the expectations are and what our expectations have been for a long period of time", Elway said. Since then, he's been a fixture on National Football League sidelines, save for a single season in 2010 when he coached at Stanford.

Fangio replaces Joseph, who lasted only two full seasons in Denver.
