Fangio takes over as the Broncos' head coach after Vance Joseph was sacked after compiling a 11-21 record in two seasons.

Elway also interviewed former Colts coach Chuck Pagano, Steelers O-line coach Mike Munchak, Patriots defensive play-caller Brian Flores and Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor while searching for his fourth head coach in six seasons.

It's down to two for the Denver Broncos. Fangio, 60, now becomes an National Football League head coach for the first time.

Landing Fangio is shades of the John Fox hire in 2011. The personnel were largely the same but Hall of Fame defensive lineman Dan Hampton explained the mindset change as going from being attack dogs under Ryan to being guard dogs under the bend-but don't-break Tobin.

Fangio served as the Bears' defensive coordinator for four seasons.

"I think the right kind of guy wants to come into a situation like this because he knows what the expectations are and what our expectations have been for a long period of time", Elway said.

While he was a great coordinator it will be interesting to see who was more responsible for the uptick this season, Mack and Roquan Smith or the evolution of Fangio's defense.

Bowles now has a tough decision to make: work with the NFL's top defense in Chicago or join former boss Arians in Tampa, though, according to Arians, that decision may already be made. Though his specialty is defense, talking to him reveals a coach who understands all facets of the game.

Broncos star linebacker Von Miller suggested last month that the Bears' defense could lead Chicago to the Super Bowl title much as Denver's defense had three years ago - even in an age of potent offenses capitalizing on ever friendlier rules to run up scores. But whether it can result in the equal of what the Bears built under Fangio and John Fox is anything but a given.
