Reports: Vic Fangio aiding Eagles’ prep for Super Bowl

Soon-to-be Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has been helping the Philadelphia Eagles prepare for Super Bowl LVII.

Multiple media outlets reported on Sunday morning that Fangio signed a two-week contract with the Eagles after the team defeated the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. He officially will sign a three-year contract with the Dolphins this week.

According to reports, Fangio has spent time with the Eagles’ coaching staff and players at the Philadelphia team hotel in Arizona. He also has recent working knowledge of the Chiefs, whom he faced twice a season while serving as the head coach of the AFC West-rival Denver Broncos.

Fangio, 64, was 19-30 in three seasons with the Broncos from 2019-21. Denver was 0-6 against the Chiefs those three seasons.

Before he became a head coach for the first time with the Broncos, he spent 19 seasons as an NFL defensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers (1995-98), Indianapolis Colts (1999-2001), Houston Texans (2002-05), 49ers (2011-14) and Chicago Bears (2015-18). He was also the defensive coordinator at Stanford in 2010.

The Dolphins are reportedly set to pay Fangio more than $4 million per season to replace fired defensive coordinator Josh Boyer on Jan. 19 after three seasons.
