ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - On his first official day on the job, newly minted Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio quickly and decisively put his stamp on his expectations with a phrase that just might have gotten him, at age 60, the first head-coaching job of his career.

Miller and Chubb are now on the receiving end of their new head coach's full capabilities.

The Broncos fired former coach Vance Joseph on December 31 after he posted 5-11 and 6-10 records in his two seasons at the helm.

The Broncos, since winning Super Bowl 50 in the 2015 season, have gone a combined 20-28 (.417), including 11-21 (.344) under recently-fired head coach Vance Joseph, who was in charge of the Broncos' first back-to-back losing seasons since 1972. After the team conducted extended interviews with five different candidates, Fangio is now the franchise's 17th head coach.

"Well, obviously, starting off we have two good players on the outside", Fangio said Thursday during his introductory press conference. "And that's death by inches".

Now, Kubiak is back, and a Denver offense that has struggled mightily these past few years should be much better for it.

After some time away from football, Kubiak has been working in the Broncos' personnel department. "That's what it comes down to for me", Stokley said.

Fangio was a holdover from the John Fox era and proved to be one of the most - if not the most - important coaches on Nagy's staff. ". If Gary's interested, then I'm interested".

"The more we talk about it, the more I think about who's going to be most receptive to Gary Kubiak".
