Congratulations to Vic Fangio ’80

Vic Fangio, a 1980 graduate of East Stroudsburg University, was announced Thursday as the new head coach of the Denver Broncos.

Fangio, who spent the past four seasons as the defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears, becomes the second ESU graduate to lead an NFL team. He joins Fred O’Connor ’62, who served as interim head coach for the San Francisco 49ers in 1978.

Fangio was involved with ESU football throughout his time as an undergrad, taking several coaching classes taught by former head coach Denny Douds in the late 70’s. He aided the program during a successful period which included four PSAC East championships in a span of six years. In the NFL, he previously held defensive coordinator positions with the San Francisco 49ers (2011-14), Houston Texans (2002-05), Indianapolis Colts (1999-2001) and Carolina Panthers (1995-98).
