Fangio, 60, had interviewed for the Bears’ head coach position last year before agreeing to return as defensive coordinator alongside first-year coach Matt Nagy.

Fangio has been a defensive coordinator for the 49ers, Texans, Colts and Panthers in a 32-year career with the NFL.

ESPN says Fangio will receive a four-year contract with the Broncos.
