The Broncos have hired Vic Fangio as their new head coach.

Florio notes that Fangio would allow team president John Elway handpick his coaching staff, which could mean the return of former head coach Gary Kubiak to run the team's offence.

The report noted the deal will be for four years and include a team option for a fifth. But Fangio remained in Chicago, where his impressive overhaul of the Bears defense has now led him to his first National Football League head coaching job. The next task Fangio assumed was revamping a Chicago Bears defense that ranked No. 30 after the 2014 season.

The Broncos fired former head coach Vance Joseph on December 31 after his second season as head coach. So, instead of going with a fresh-faced offensive-minded coach in the mold of the Rams' Sean McVay, he zeroed in on the grizzled teacher who's more like his first head coaching hire, John Fox, or the Chiefs' Andy Reid.

Fangio became a popular head coaching candidate after consistently fielding stellar defenses over the greater part of the past decade.

Four Chicago defenders were selected to the Pro Bowl under his watch in 2018: pass rusher Khalil Mack, safety Eddie Jackson, lineman Akiem Hicks and cornerback Kyle Fuller.

After news broke, Bears receiver Allen Robinson shared his thoughts on Twitter. In his final season leading the Bears defense, they ranked as the No. 3 overall defense while boasting the NFL's best run-stopping defense. The 60-year-old coordinator has been with the Bears since 2015 and came over after a few years with Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers.

Despite the experience and accolades, Fangio had hardly been considered as a head coach prior to January.

The Bears and Broncos are scheduled to play next season in Denver.

The easy answer to the latter is in the person of secondary coach Ed Donatell, who has been defensive coordinator for Atlanta, Green Bay and Washington.
