NFL head coach fired, creating 3rd opening for 2022
A third NFL head coaching job is open heading into the 2021 season. The Denver Broncos have moved on from Vic Fangio after 3 seasons.
“With the foundation in place, the progress that’s been made and the resources we have to get better, I’m excited about the future of our team. We will find an outstanding leader and head coach for the Broncos and our fans.”

Denver played its regular-season finale on Saturday, a 28-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Broncos finished the season 7-10. They were 19-30 in 3 seasons with Fangio.
Fangio’s dismissal follows the resignation of Jon Gruden and the firing of Urban Meyer. There will almost certainly be more NFL firings on Black Monday.
