Vic Fangio is going to be a hot name this offseason, as he should be.
His San Francisco 49ers defenses have been everything any coach would desire: intimidating, physical and opportunistic. The Niners give up a miserly 17.3 points per game, and that's including the Seahawks debacle.
Fangio has been in the league in various positions for over 25 years. Someone is going to give him a shot. The Eagles could use a complete philosophical shift, and Fangio (like Horton) would provide a new defense-first mindset.
His extensive NFL experience and defensive intelligence make him the best candidate for this job.
