After just one day, the Chicago Bears have already found their new defensive coordinator, as former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has been hired by the team.
Pagano, who coached the Colts for six seasons, will take over for former defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who accepted a new job as head coach of the Denver Broncos earlier this week.
“We are excited to add Chuck to our staff as defensive coordinator,” Bears G.M. Ryan Pace said. “He has successful experience at many different levels in this league and he is a great teacher with an aggressive mentality that fits our style of football. 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.”
