Broncos to name Vic Fangio new coach; Kubiak returning to sideline

In January of 2017, when Kyle Shanahan took over as 49ers head coach, reports circulated that Fangio was one of Shanahan's top defensive coordinator candidates.

There are plenty of the next chapters coming, but when John Elway named Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio as the Broncos' 17th head coach, he chose experience, the benefits of a long résumé and a track record in the National Football League that is now into its fourth decade.

Zigging while everyone else zags, the Broncos sought a general in Fangio who could run his defense, leaving the offense to Gary Kubiak and everything else up to John Elway as Denver looks to snap its three-season playoff-less streak.

The Dolphins also planned to interview Fangio as well, but never scheduled a meeting. Elway wanted an expert in the field, explaining his pursuit of Fangio. That's a big part of it in today's world. 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. "We're going to try to find that guy with that "it" factor, that can make those right decisions and also lead men".

Vance Joseph was sacked on December 31 after he produced an unimpressive 11-21 record during his tenure as head coach of the Broncos. The players played hard for Joseph through the struggles of the past two seasons, and many in the Broncos' complex have repeatedly said they respected how Joseph conducted himself.

Elway has famously been unable to figure out his franchise's quarterback since Peyton Manning retired following the 2015 season. Denver ranked 24 in points scored (20.6) and 28 in third-down conversions (33.3 percent). The first being Fangio while the other was Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak, according to ESPN.

It appears the Broncos are about to give him that chance. Kubiak brought the Broncos a Super Bowl 50 title.
