Just three days ago, Vic Fangio was in a press box at Soldier Field calling out the plays to put his No. 1 ranked Bears’ defense in position to defeat the defending Super Bowl champs, the Philadelphia Eagles.
Now, although still sporting the orange and navy, Fangio is the head coach of the Denver Broncos.
There is no question Fangio deserved his opportunity to be the head man, but the Bears are without a defensive coordinator, and finding his replacement will be the top priority for Chicago in the next upcoming days.
But until that happens, take a look at some of the reactions on Twitter from Bears players, national media members and, of course, fans on Fangio becoming the Broncos head coach.

I'm not thrilled about Vic Fangio leaving. But he's earned this spot. Congratulations, coach. https://t.co/qfMh8WoXJC

Vic Fangio rebuilt the #Bears defense. We are all grateful for his amazing impact on the team.
He was critical in rebuilding TWO defenses in the last 10 years (SF, CHI), taking them from terrible to best in the NFL. So sad to see Uncle Vic go, but he deserves it.
