The Denver Broncos have fired head coach Vic Fangio. He spent the last three seasons leading the team.
He was 19-30 in the aforementioned three seasons. The 63-year-old guided the Broncos to two straight last-place finishes in the AFC West.
“I have tremendous respect for Vic and all he’s accomplished in the NFL,” Broncos GM George Paton, who just completed his first season with the team, said in a statement. “Over the past year, I appreciate his partnership, friendship and the tireless work-ethic he demonstrated as our head coach. Vic will continue to have great success in this league, and I thank him for everything he did for the Broncos as well as me personally.
“Looking ahead, there’s a lot of work to be done for us to take the next step. Winning is not easy, and we’re going to embrace the opportunity to improve in every single area of our operation.”
A national search will begin at the conclusion of the NFL season on Sunday. Fangio is expected to be one of many coaches, who will be fired at the end of their respective seasons.
Whoever Paton hires will be the team’s fifth head coach in nine-years.
“George will have full authority to select the next head coach of the Broncos,” Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis said in a statement. “This is his decision and his program. I have complete confidence in George’s ability to lead an exhaustive and successful head-coaching search.
“We will give George every available resource and fully support him in hiring the very best head coach to lead the Broncos.”
Presently, the Broncos are the third NFL team, who will be looking for a head coach. Both the Las Vegas Raiders and the Jacksonville Jaguars have interim head coaches.
“Our search to find the next head coach of the Broncos will be a comprehensive, collaborative process,” Paton said. “We’re approaching it with an open mind and look forward to spending time with some outstanding candidates.
“With the foundation in place, the progress that’s been made and the resources we have to get better, I’m excited about the future of our team. We will find an outstanding leader and head coach for the Broncos and our fans.”© 2007-2022 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved.
