According to Ian Rapoport, the Broncos are expected to decide on their next head coach soon between Bears DC Vic Fangio and Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak.
Sources close to Fangio have told Rapoport that they believe Fangio is “well positioned” to get the job and he is “very interested.”
Beyond that, Rapoport says that Denver is high on Fangio, but haven’t made a firm decision as of now.
Fangio, 60, began his NFL coaching career with the Saints back in 1986 as their linebackers coach. He has worked for several teams including the Panthers, Colts, Texans, Ravens and 49ers before he was hired by the Bears as their defensive coordinator back in 2015.
Fangio’s contract expired last year, but the Bears re-signed him to a new three-year contract.
In 2018, the Bears’ defense ranks No. 3 in yards allowed, No. 1 in points allowed, No. 1 in rushings yards allowed and No. 7 in passing yards allowed.
Munchak, 58, played 12 years in the NFL for the Houston Oilers. He was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, four-time first-team All-Pro, and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2011.
Munchak began his NFL coaching career in 1994 with the Oilers as their offensive assistant/quality control coach and eventually worked his way up to being the Titans head coach in 2011. After Tennessee fired following his third season, Munchak agreed to become the Steelers’ offensive line coach in 2014.
