I really hope he doesn’t jump ship to accept a head coaching position after this season is over.

According to multiple reports, the Broncos and Dolphins have both requested permission to speak with Fangio about the head coaching vacancies they created on Monday.

Fangio has been the defensive coordinator for five NFL teams over a pro coaching career that began in the USFL and is in his fourth season with the Bears. Chicago allowed the fewest points in the league this year and ranked third in yards allowed on their way to a NFC North title.

Teams wishing to speak to Fangio will have to wait until after the Bears play the Eagles in the Wild Card round.

if he leaves i'll be gutted and angry. That said, he and his family deserve it, so who am I to say anything.

Whatever coach does, wherever he ends up, chicago bears legend for life.

If Fangio leaves, Pace needs to be dialing Todd Bowles with the quickness.

Not a bad call. He built a nasty defense in AZ.

Miami didn’t strike with our OCs, so they’re going for our DC. I DONT LIKE IT!

Chicago fans need to put together a “Please don’t go” highlight reel for Fangio. I mean he’s a fantastic DC, and his press conferences are riveting.

It would be a bummer if he left. He has talked about how much he loves Chicago, so hopefully he stays.

Football aside, I think Fangio would stay because of the golf courses and baseball culture of the city. He seems like the kind of person who isn't too terribly interested in uprooting or going through tons of changes. He's paid like a head coach, could easily be considered a co-head coach of this team, and if the Bears don't win a title this year, why would he leave in the midst of finally being able to coach a defense he helped sculpt that's at its peak?

But head coaching gigs are rare, and I could see how these opportunities would be too tough to decline, but Vic isn't your typical guy. Hopefully he stays.
