The Chicago Bears found a replacement for Vic Fangio, hiring Chuck Pagano.
Pagano was hired as Chicago's new defensive coordinator, the team announced on Friday.
Pagano will take over for Fangio, who was hired by the Denver Broncos as the team's new head coach this week.
"We are excited to add Chuck to our staff as defensive coordinator," Bears head coach Matt Nagy said in a statement.
"He has successful experience at many different levels in this league and he is a great teacher with an aggressive mentality that fits our style of football. He is a man of high character and has a passion for the game that will no doubt add to the culture we have already started building at Halas Hall."
