Denver Broncos general manager George Paton announced Sunday that Vic Fangio is no longer the coach of the team, after spinning his third season without reaching the playoffs.
“I have great respect for Vic and all that he has accomplished. I appreciate his friendship and great work ethic that he demonstrated as our head coach. I appreciate what he did for the Broncos and I wish him success in the league, ”was the message with which Paton fired Fangio.
Coach he is responsible for the drought of three of the six years that Denver has not reached the postseason. In those three seasons, Fangio had a record of 19 games won and 30 lost, a situation that the manager hoped to improve with the new coach.
“Looking ahead, there is a lot of work to do to take the next step. Winning is not easy and we will take this opportunity to improve. Our search to find the new head coach will be a comprehensive process, “he explained.
The Broncos finished the 2021 season in last place in the Western Division of the American Conference with a record of seven wins and 10 falls, the last this Saturday when they lost at home 28-24 to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fangio, 63, arrived in Denver in 2019, with whom he signed for four years, a contract of which he served three. In addition to his negative record, the coach received criticism for failing to consolidate a quarterback between Teddy Bridgewater, 29, who missed the last three games with a concussion, and Drew Lock, 25.
Despite the bad campaign, Paton assured that the 2022 season will be better with the new work team that comes to the team.
