However, for new Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio, defense is in his DNA.

No official announcement has come from the team.

Vance Joseph was sacked on December 31 after he produced an unimpressive 11-21 record during his tenure as head coach of the Broncos.

Fangio has turned Bears" defense into a ferocious unit, one that has echoed the legendary "85 Bears squad. The 49ers aren't expected to play the Broncos during the regular season until 2022 after playing them in December (a 20-14 victory), though they could play in the preseason as the Broncos are a regular exhibition opponent. Joseph didn't have much to work with at quarterback, shuffling through Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler, Paxton Lynch and Case Keenum, none of whom are going to carry a team to a Super Bowl.

Elway didn't believe that innovation required a young up-and-comer, however.

Another 33 percent of companies said they plan to move out of China in the next six to 12 months, according to the UBS report. Back in Argentina, the two leaders agreed a 90-day truce on new tariffs, which is set to expire on March 1.

The hires mean that only the Jets, Dolphins and Bengals remain in the hunt for their next head coach.

In 19 seasons with several different National Football League teams, Fangio's defenses have ranked in the top 10 in yards given up and points against eight times.

Fangio inherits a Broncos team that has missed the playoffs in three consecutive seasons, but showed defensive improvement. Despite an offer from the Green Bay Packers, Fangio stuck around with the Chicago Bears for one more season.

While he was a great coordinator it will be interesting to see who was more responsible for the uptick this season, Mack and Roquan Smith or the evolution of Fangio's defense. "I've heard he's kind of a strict guy but also lets guys have fun", said Broncos safety Will Parks. It's why, after Elway sifted through the injuries of the past season, including seven players who had started multiple games on offense who ended the season on injured reserve, the trades of Demaryius Thomas and Aqib Talib, and the close losses in eight games against teams that made this year's playoffs, he still fired Joseph. "They get takeaways, they play tight coverage and they got a great run defense", Miller said.
