New Broncos coach Vic Fangio isn’t just bringing

ENGLEWOOD Demarcus Walker Jersey , Colo. (AP) — New Broncos coach Vic Fangio isn’t just bringing his defensive philosophies from Chicago. He plucked outside linebackers coach Brandon Staley off the Bears‘ staff for a similar role in Denver, and then brought secondary coach Ed Donatell over to serve as his defensive coordinator.Donatell has spent the last four seasons as the Bears’ defensive backs coach, coinciding with Fangio’s stint as Chicago’s defensive coordinator before his hiring in Denver last week. He spent the four seasons before that doing the same for Fangio in San Francisco.A former defensive coordinator in Green Bay and Atlanta, Donatell has twice coached the secondary in Denver, first for Mike Shanahan from 1995 to 1999 and again for Josh McDaniels in 2000.“Ed’s been an integral part of top-10 defenses for six of the last eight seasons in two different places, and he’s a great fit to be our defensive coordinator,” Fangio said Tuesday night. “Having worked very closely with him for a number of years, Ed has a strong understanding of the entire defense from the front end to the back end with the defensive backs being his specialty.“He’s a very good teacher and believes in the fundamentals in the classroom and on the field.”Fangio, however, will make the defensive play calls himself.“They hired me because of my work on the defensive side of the ball. I’m going to give them my work on the defensive side of the ball Garett Bolles Jersey ,” Fangio said last week. “I believe, for the most part, I’m pretty good at it.”Fangio also was interviewing 49ers QBs coach Rich Scangarello on Tuesday about his offensive coordinator job after rebuffing Gary Kubiak , who joined the Minnesota Vikings as an assistant head coach and offensive adviser Monday.Scangarello (scain-guh-REL-oh) would seem a good fit for an offense that general manager John Elway declared needs to modernize to keep up with teams around the NFL who are all-in on the run-pass option, among other innovations.Staley, 36, goes from having Khalil Mack as his prized pupil to tutoring Broncos star Von Miller .Mack had 12 1/2 sacks and six forced fumbles in helping the Bears (12-5) qualify for the playoffs for the first time in eight years despite missing all of training camp before the Raiders traded him to Chicago just before opening weekend.Miller posted 14 1/2 sacks last year and teamed with rookie Bradley Chubb (12 sacks) to form the NFL’s most potent pass-rushing duo. Fangio and Elway have said they believe Miller can get even better.Playing with a lead would go a long way in that quest. The Broncos (6-10) were awful under offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave last year, punting on their opening drive in each of their last nine games.Neither Musgrave nor defensive coordinator Joe Woods will return in 2019. Special teams coordinator Tom McMahon is expected to have the same role when Fangio finalizes his coaching staff.The Broncos didn’t technically have an outside linebackers coach last year despite having three first-round picks at the position in Miller, Chubb and Shane Ray. Former Cowboys and Broncos star DeMarcus Ware was a volunteer coach for the edge rushers but he missed long stretches of the season while competing on “Dances with the Stars” last fall. Steve Atwater stated the case for the early rounds, while Andrew Mason did so for the later rounds."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos Free AgencyBroncos DraftBroncos PodcastsBroncos 2019 ScheduleKey Offseason DatesCommunity RulesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub 鉁旴reaking NewsBroncos 2019 Draft Class Announced脳Broncos podcastsOrange and Blue 760 court: When should the Broncos select a cornerback in the NFL Draft?New DaeSean Hamilton Jersey ,28commentsSteve Atwater stated the case for the early rounds, while Andrew Mason did so for the later rounds. Orange and Blue 760 court: When should the Broncos select a cornerback in the NFL Draft?Once again, court was in session for Orange and Blue 760. For Friday’s case in 1st & 10 @ 10 court: Should John Elway and the Denver Broncos select a cornerback in rounds one-three or four-seven in the NFL Draft? Broncos legend Steve Atwater made the case for the early rounds; while Andrew Mason did so for the later rounds. Presiding over Friday’s case was the “honorable” (cough, cough) Ryan Edwards. What makes this case even more interesting is some of the evidence that leaked earlier this week from Vic Fangio. It was then that he told potential jurors in this trial that Kareem Jackson spent most of his time at safety for the defense in Denver’s voluntary mini camp. How will that information impact the trial? For what it’s worth, I’m with Mason on this. Cornerback isn’t a “need” for the Broncos to use on an early round pick, but as I told the guys in my Friday segment, you always needs depth at that position. What makes it even better and more exciting is the Draft is less than a week away. So the rumors, speculation and mocks will finally cease. Bonus listen I joined the guys on Friday’s show to talk about the Draft and the schedule, as well Rick Astley.
