Browns hire Kitchens, Broncos land Fangio as National Football League jobs go fast

Report: Broncos coaching search down to two

Elway said he also plans to take a self-assessment this month to review the moves he's made that have led to Denver's three-year playoff drought since Peyton Manning retired a month after the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 title.

After a year as an assistant in the USFL, Fangio was hired as a linebackers coach for the New Orleans Saints in 1986, and he has been on an National Football League staff every year since, save for 2010 when he was Stanford's defensive coordinator.

Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has reportedly reached an agreement to become the next head coach of the Broncos, according to Adam Schefter and Dan Graziano of ESPN.

The Broncos fired former coach Vance Joseph on December 31 after he posted 5-11 and 6-10 records in his two seasons at the helm. This will be his first head-coaching gig.

Fangio served as the Bears' defensive coordinator for four seasons. The fans calling for Joseph's firing began voicing their complaints early on this season and continued speaking up until general manager John Elway gave Joseph the boot following the team's final game of the season. He did a strong job of putting together a staff past year, but Fangio and the defense was already in place. So they need the Fangio hire to work and Kubiak's role in the offense to be productive, because the Broncos are in danger of losing much of the luster they've worked so hard to create.

With Joseph out and Fangio in, the Broncos will look to capitalize on the plethora of talent the team has on the defensive side of the ball. "The guy knows the game in and out and he knows his players, and ultimately, he wants the best for us out there on the field, so he puts us in positions to make plays". This season, he orchestrated the top defense in the NFL. Elway refuses to use the word "rebuilding", but the team has multiple issues to address. In that season the Bears acquired Khalil Mack and saw their defense go from good to great.
