The fate many expected for Vic Fangio has come to fruition, as the Denver Broncos are parting ways with the first-time head coach after three consecutive losing seasons.

In an email statement, club CEO and president Joe Ellis and general manager George Paton thanked Fangio for his efforts over the past three seasons.

“This morning, George and I informed Vic of the decision to part ways with him as head coach of the Denver Broncos,” Ellis said in the statement.

“For the last three seasons, Vic put his heart and soul into coaching the Broncos. I want to thank coach Fangio for giving his maximum effort to our organization since the day he was hired.”

Added Paton:

“I have tremendous respect for Vic and all he’s accomplished in the NFL. Over the past year, I appreciate his partnership, friendship and the tireless work ethic he demonstrated as our head coach.

“Vic will continue to have great success in this league, and I thank him for everything he did for the Broncos as well as me personally.”
