Vic Fangio, former Broncos head coach, is willing to return


Vic Fangio, who has played in the NFL for more than 30 seasons, will take a break in 2022, but he’s open to returning in the future if the appropriate chance arises. Fangio told the press, “We’ll evaluate where things stand, how they grow, and what’s available to see whether I’m a suitable match for anybody. But it’s undoubtedly possible, presumably in the role of coordinator.” After three seasons with the Denver Broncos, Fangio, 63, was dismissed in January, ending his first and only head coaching position to date. Fangio failed to advance Denver to the playoffs during his tenure with the Broncos, going 19-30. His defenses were still strong, though. With the exception of a miserable 5-11 2020 season, Fangio’s defenses were in the top 10 in terms of points allowed. Denver’s defense ranked No. 3 in the NFL in terms of points allowed and No. 8 in terms of yards in his last season. In 2018, he was also chosen as the AP NFL Assistant Coach of the Year.
