The Denver Broncos will bring Vic Fangio back as the team’s head coach in 2021.
Despite entering this season on the hot seat, Fangio was able to win over management enough to where all parties involved feel confident having him preside over the team next year.
“The Broncos recognize the important of stability and believe in Fangio, according to sources,” ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported on sunday.
“They know how he operates, respect his approach and believe he was dealt a difficult hand this season between the Broncos’ early-season injuries — including star pass rusher Von Miller and top wide receiver Courtland Sutton — and other challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including playing a game without any experienced NFL quarterbacks on the roster.”
Coming into this weekend’s showdown against the Los Angeles Chargers Fangio boasted a 12-18 overall mark and a 5-9 record for the year.
Fangio signed a four-year contract with a fifth-year option back in January 2019.
