Source: Fins to hire ex-Broncos HC Fangio as DC

Former Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio has reached agreement with the Miami Dolphins to be the team’s defensive coordinator, a source confirmed to ESPN.

Fangio, 64, sat out this season after he was fired as the Broncos’ head coach last January.

Fangio was 19-30 in three seasons as the Broncos’ head coach after being hired by the team in 2019. In Miami he will be reunited with outside linebacker Bradley Chubb, who he coached in Denver and was traded to the Dolphins last season.

NFL Network first reported that Fangio and the Dolphins had reached agreement.

Fangio’s defenses have finished in the top 10 seven times, most recently with the Chicago Bears in 2018. He also has been a defensive coordinator with the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers and Bears over 19 seasons.

The Dolphins fired defensive coordinator Josh Boyer earlier this month. Mike McDaniel had kept Boyer as his defensive coordinator when he was hired as the Dolphins’ head coach last year.
