Vic Fangio is heading to the Windy City.
It's a strong hire for the Bears after Fangio helped build San Francisco's defense into a beast over the past four seasons. They tailed off this autumn, but the Niners ranked second, second and third in points allowed between 2011 and 2013.
Fangio under Jim Harbaugh inherited a Niners defense with a handful of stars in the making. That won't be the case in Chicago, but this experienced assistant stands out as an impressive get for Fox.
