Denver Broncos rumors: Coaching search down to two

Chicago Tribune beat reporter Brad Biggs reported on Monday that the Broncos had completed their interview with Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.

Klis went onto explain that Gary Kubiak will "oversee" the offensive side, not specifying if he will be the offensive coordinator or just continue in his advisor role, like how he worked with Bill Musgrave past year.

Denver has also blocked the Bengals from interviewing him for the same spot.

The Dolphins have been searching for its next head coach ever since the team fired Adam Gase on December 31.

He has been Pittsburgh's offensive line coach since 2014, after a three-year stint as the Tennessee Titans' head coach. "Basically, what I've heard from people around the league is Fangio's a really good defensive coordinator".

Kubiak, 57, went 21-11 in two seasons as the Broncos' head coach and guided Denver to a victory in Super Bowl 50. Chuck Pagano is a former head coach who came up on the defensive side of the ball. The Broncos offensive line improved some this season, despite injuries.

Fangio boasts a strong defensive background, and perhaps paired with the right offensive coordinator, can revive a Broncos franchise that has missed the playoffs in three consecutive seasons.

"But he doesn't have the typical head coach personality", Klis said.

"I want them to be great on one side of the ball and great at what they do - whatever that position may be - whether it be a coordinator or whatever they've done", Elway said last week. I want the guys that understand the game, they understand X's and O's but also have the ability to lead men.
