You can probably expect a Vic Fangio apology sometime this afternoon.
Fangio finds himself in hot water on Wednesday after the Broncos coach went on a Tuesday afternoon conference call with Denver reporters and made these comments about his perception of racial bias in the NFL:
I think our problems in the NFL along those lines are minimal. We're a league of meritocracy. You earn what you get, you get what you earn. I don't see racism at all in the NFL, I don't see discrimination in the NFL," Fangio told reporters Tuesday when asked about his experiences in the league over the past four decades. "We all live together, joined as one, for one common goal, and we all intermingle and mix tremendously. If society reflected an NFL team, we'd all be great.
Not long after, Fangio started hearing it from NFL players who were rightfully upset with the coach's assumptions:
At this rate, the apology might come earlier.
Former Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio is making the most of his time at home, along with a mouth-watering homemade Italian meal. The Broncos' Twitter account shared a video of the current Denver Broncos head coach making homemade meatballs and red sauce, backed by soothing Italian music.
While he’s currently relieved of coaching duties, I am petitioning to give Vic Fangio his own cooking show. First of all, his production value is impeccable. The soundtrack! The ambiance! I could practically smell the sauce simmering through my screen. This man is wasting his talents on football and should coach us all on how to form the perfect meatball, instead. I mean, just look at that technique! Gordon Ramsey could never. Once it's safe to socialize, I’m inviting myself over to Fangio's house for dinner.
It seems like Akiem Hicks would agree! Hicks was coached by Fangio on the Bears from 2016-2018 and seemed just as surprised as all of us when he saw Fangio’s skills in the kitchen.
