Longtime NFL coach hints at return
Former Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio could return to the NFL after this season.
Despite the interest in defensive coordinator and head coach earlier this offseason, Fangio is taking a year off from NFL coaching. But if an opportunity arises before the 2023 season, he could very well return to the professional coaching ranks.
“We’ll see where things are and what develops and what’s available to see if I’m a good match for somebody, but it’s definitely a possibility, probably as a coordinator,” Fangio said, According to Chris Tomasson of Pioneer press.
Fangio has decades of NFL coaching experience beginning in 1986, including periods of defensive coordination with the Panthers, Texans, Colts, 49ers and Bears. He notched a 19-30 record as Broncos head coach before being fired after the 2021 season.
The 63-year-old coach was interviewed for the Jaguars head coaching job earlier this offseason before the job eventually went to Doug Pederson.
With his wealth of experience, Fangio should have no problem landing a job next season.
