Vic Fangio signs contract with the Eagles

Ian Rappaport and Adam Schefter reported hours before Super Bowl LVII that Philadelphia hired former Broncos head coach Vic Fangio to a two-week contract as the team prepares to face off against Patrick Mahomes.

Fangio was brought on before he begins his new job as the defensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins.

As a former head coach in Denver, Fangio had experienced the Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes offense twice a season and provides valued experience for Jonathan Gannon and the entire Eagles staff. Reports from throughout the season stated that Fangio had been working as a senior assistant for the defense throughout the season.

Fangio’s defenses have been some of the best in the modern age of football. They have finished in the top 10 eight times, most recently with Chicago (No. 3) in 2018. The Broncos finished eighth overall in 2021, his final season as their head coach.

We are hours away from seeing just how helpful Fangio’s tutelage has been for the Eagles coaches, and roster.
