Vic Fangio was hired as the Denver Broncos' new head coach, leaving a enormous void in Chicago.

With Vic Fangio hired away as the new head coach of the Denver Broncos, Matt Nagy decided on the permanent replacement Friday evening, hiring former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano.

Before he was Colts head coach, he was the defensive coordinator and secondary coach for the Baltimore Ravens.

Pagano spent six seasons in Indianapolis as head coach, leading the Colts to a 53-43 regular-season record, two AFC South Championships, and three consecutive playoff appearances. "He is a man of high character and has a passion for the game that will no doubt add to the culture we have already started building at Halas Hall".

Welsh town wants world's steepest street title
Residents in the town of Harlech, in Gwynedd, believe the street called Ffordd Pen Llech stands on a gradient of 36 per cent. It takes about 10 minutes to walk up the 350-metre long Baldwin Street, but residents often do it in seven.

Pagano comes from a long line of defensive positions, ever since beginning his career in coaching.

The 58-year-old Pagano will walk into as ideal a situation as one can find as a defensive coordinator, tasked with figuring out what to do with a treasure trove of defensive playmakers. Before that he served as defensive backs coach for the Ravens, Raiders and Browns. The team was also third in total defense, second in yards per play allowed and first in points allowed.

Pagano takes over a Bears defense that led the National Football League in takeaways (36), interceptions (27), fewest rushing yards allowed (80.0 per game), fewest points per game (17.7), lowest opponents' passer rating (72.9) and three-and-out percentage (26.8).
