In addition to hiring Fangio as their head coach, the Broncos are expected to hire Gary Kubiak as the team's offensive coordinator. 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.
The report noted the deal will be for four years and include a team option for a fifth.
The 2018 season was his best as Fangio guided a defense that ranked No. 1 in the NFL, allowed a league-low 17.7 points per game and led the Bears into the playoffs for the first time in eight years. John Elway chose to buck that trend, hiring former Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio for the job. In six of his past nine seasons as coordinator for the 49ers and Bears, Fangio has seen his defenses finish in the top 10 in both of those categories.
Fangio takes over as the Broncos' head coach after Vance Joseph was sacked after compiling a 11-21 record in two seasons. The Bears finished with the league's top-ranked scoring defense, but were eliminated from the playoffs with a 16-15 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card round. The Broncos went 11-21 in Joseph's tenure. 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.

Monaco have a very youthful squad and Fabregas' experience will prove to be crucial in the relegation dogfight. I'd imagine when you first go in you have to go in and you earn the respect of the guys", he said.
Denver is done with its head coach search.
"I'm excited, especially as a defensive guy". With the Bears since 2015, Fangio also held the same role with San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts and Carolina Panthers.
The exact weeks and order of the game won't be determined until later this offseason, but Chicago will play all four AFC West teams next season, which will also include Matt Nagy's return to Kansas City.
