ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Vic Fangio has been helping the Eagles prepare for Super Bowl LVII.
Fangio signed a two-week contract with the Eagles after they beat the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.
Rather than pack up for his move to Miami, where he will become the Dolphins defensive coordinator, Fangio spent the past two weeks in Arizona, helping the Eagles coaches and players get ready for the Chiefs.
More specifically, he assisted the offensive staff in their self-scouting process and supplied knowledge of the Chiefs’ defense that he faced twice a year while he was the head coach of the Broncos from 2019 to 2021.
Since he is contractually tied to Philadelphia during this period, the 64-year-old Fangio would receive a Super Bowl ring if the Eagles beat the Chiefs tonight.
Fangio has coached in the NFL since 1986, first as the Saints’ linebackers coach, then as the defensive coordinator for the Panthers, Colts and Texans. He had a chance to win a ring as the 49ers’ defensive coordinator when they lost in Super Bowl XLVII to the Ravens.
Fangio was 19-30 in three seasons as the Broncos’ coach. As a coordinator, his defenses have finished in the top 10 eight times, most recently with the Bears (No. 3) in 2018. The Broncos finished eighth overall in 2021, his final season as their head coach.
