Todd Bowles to choose between Bucs, Bears defensive coordinator jobs

Fangio, who spent the last four seasons as the defensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears, will be named the head coach of the Denver Broncos, according to multiple reports Wednesday.

Fangio is well-traveled as a defensive assistant or coordinator in the National Football League, a streak going back to 1986 when he was first hired to coach linebackers for the New Orleans Saints. The decision, on the surface, may seem perplexing.

Todd Bowles may not be atop many lists to fill head coaching vacancies, but that doesn't mean he lacks suitors as a coordinator.

A year ago when Matt Nagy was hired as head coach a big question was whether or not Vic Fangio would have stayed.

In addition to Mack, who joined the Bears in a trade from Oakland, three other Bears defenders were selected to the Pro Bowl under Fangio's watch in 2018: safety Eddie Jackson, lineman Akiem Hicks and cornerback Kyle Fuller. "Even though he's a tough love guy, his players love him, and I think that speaks volumes about his character".

QB Justin Fields finalizing transfer from Georgia to Ohio State
In the last two games of the season, Haskins completed 59 of his 78 passes for 750 yards, eight touchdowns and one interception. With Fields gone, Fromm is Georgia's only scholarship quarterback on the roster at the moment, but reinforcements are coming.

After news broke, Bears receiver Allen Robinson shared his thoughts on Twitter. The 60-year-old coordinator has been with the Bears since 2015 and came over after a few years with Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers.

Former Jets coach Todd Bowles, a longtime friend of Nagy's, could also be in play as a candidate. "That's what it comes down to for me", Stokley said. He treats people the right way. He was chosen over fellow finalist Mike Munchak, the offensive line coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and will replace Vance Joseph following a 6-10 season. "Those are two things that I look for". That led to Fangio's arrival in Chicago.

Fangio replaces Vance Joseph, who was sacked on New Year's Eve after posting the franchise's first back-to-back losing seasons since the early 1970s.

The Bears are slated to travel to Denver for a road matchup on their 2019 schedule.
