Vic Fangio has decided to accept the Miami Dolphins offer to become their new defensive coordinator after speaking with multiple teams, according to report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Fangio will officially join the Miami Dolphins coaching staff after the Super Bowl, so he finish out the season in his role as consultant with the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles.
As Head Coach of the Denver Broncos, Fangio went just 19-30 in his three years there. He has had success as a defensive coordinator for the Bears, 49ers, Texans and Colts.
Fangio replaces Josh Boyer, who was fired Jan. 19 after serving as Dolphins DC the past three seasons. He was retained by the Dolphins last year after they hired Mike McDaniel as Head Coach.
