Browns hire Kitchens, Broncos land Fangio as National Football League jobs go fast

Then he became head coach of the Broncos in 2017.

Shortly after announcing the hiring of new head coach Freddie Kitchens, who went from the running backs coach to offensive coordinator during the 2018 season, the team made another move on the coaching staff.

The interim head coach, Gregg Williams, meanwhile, lost out on both the top job and his defensive coordinator job, being fired Wednesday, according to ESPN.

From 2001 until 2003 he served assistant at UNT under Mean Green head coach Darrell Dickey.

He has mostly coached a 3-4 scheme but he is not very experienced as a defensive coordinator.

Zigging while everyone else zags, the Broncos sought a general in Fangio who could run his defense, leaving the offense to Gary Kubiak and everything else up to John Elway as Denver looks to snap its three-season playoff-less streak.

The 46-year-old Joseph was sacked by the Broncos last week after going 11-21 in two seasons. As defensive coordinator, he transformed a unit that finished 20th in total defense in 2015 (his first year there) to the league's best in 2018. Williams was not retained as defensive coordinator and is out of the organization.

Fangio has 19 years of co-ordinating experience for the Panthers, Colts, Texans, 49ers and Bears.

Additionally, the New York Jets have revealed that they've interviewed Todd Monken for their head coach position, though ultimately, he lost out on the position to former Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, who played against them for years.
