Fangio, 60, has never held a head coaching position over his coaching career that has spanned over three decades.
Despite more than 30 years as a coach in the National Football League this will be the first time Fangio will be a head coach. The decision, on the surface, may seem perplexing.
The team fired Vance Joseph last month at the conclusion of a 6-10 campaign that saw the Broncos miss the playoffs for the third straight year since winning Super Bowl 50.
Just hours after it was widely reported that former New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles would be joining Bruce Arians with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it appears he'll have another potential destination.
The Denver Broncos have chosen Vic Fangio as their new head coach.

Elway concurred with star cornerback Chris Harris Jr.'s assessment last week that the Broncos need to modernize their offensive and defensive schemes to keep up with teams such as the Rams and Chiefs, who have fully embraced the run-pass option craze and other college concepts. Former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak is expected to move from his role in the front office to become Fangio's offensive coordinator. "If he wants to be a head coach one day, I want him to take a job and be a head coach". He has served as a defensive coordinator since 1995 with stops in Carolina, Indianapolis, Houston, San Francisco and Chicago, where's he worked since 2015. Though his specialty is defense, talking to him reveals a coach who understands all facets of the game. Multiple coaches on staff could be retained, though the expectation remains there will be new offensive and defensive coordinators.
The Bears and Broncos are scheduled to play next season in Denver.
Despite the experience and accolades, Fangio had hardly been considered as a head coach prior to January.
Fangio was also defensive coordinator at Stanford in 2010. He did a strong job of putting together a staff previous year, but Fangio and the defense was already in place.
