The Chicago Bears will be competing against the Broncos for a head coach

A very familiar face is no longer going to be the head coach of the Denver Broncos. Reports are coming out today that Vic Fangio is out as the Broncos head coach. Fangio is the first to be fired as Black Monday approaches. He is technically fired on a Sunday, but that’s because the Broncos lost to the Kansas City Chiefs yesterday in a very close 28-24 game.

The big reason I think Fangio is out as head coach is the fact that he has struggled to beat his divisional opponents. Fangio may have realized that he was already out the door at his press conference on Saturday when he threw the quarterback room under the bus.

The thing is, Fangio wasn’t wrong in his statement. Alright, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that Derek Carr is a top-shelf quarterback, but he is definitely an upgrade over Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock. During his time as head coach, the Broncos have only two divisional wins. That’s a 2-16 record within the AFC West. It won’t take long for Fangio to land with a new team though. I expect him to be a defensive coordinator for John Harbaugh if Harbaugh returns to the NFL as rumored.
