Yesterday Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was headed to Washington.
That bummed out a few Chicago Bears fans.
Earlier this morning he reported that Fangio was finalizing a deal to become John Fox's defensive coordinator in Chicago. That report was confirmed, making many Bears very happy.
Source confirms multiple reports #Bears finalizing deal to add Vic Fangio as DC. Appeared he was Fox's No 1 choice.— Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) January 20, 2015
This next tweet will make even more Bears' fans happy.
Source confirms #Bears hiring of Vic Fangio. Source also said that Joe DeCamillis and Mel Tucker were told they were out from get go.— Adam Jahns (@adamjahns) January 20, 2015
Going from Mel Tucker to Vic Fangio is like going from an Applebee's rib-eye to a Gibsons Bone-In Filet Mignon.
Vic Fangio is an excellent hire as new #Bears DC. 3-4 base in SF. Multiple fronts in sub (nickel/dime). Aggressive, attacking style.— Matt Bowen (@MattBowen41) January 20, 2015
There's obviously a strong possibility that Fangio will implement his 3-4 defense, but he has worked with the 4-3 in the past. Whether he runs a 30 or a 40 front, the Bears will no doubt have multiple looks on defense.
What are your thoughts on the latest coaching hire?
