49ers likely to name Vic Fangio defensive coordinator

Speculation has been that Jim Harbaugh will bring Vic Fangio with him from Stanford to become the defensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter pushed that thinking along today, saying that move is expected to happen.

Fangio served as the defensive coordinator on Harbaugh’s staff in Palo Alto, Calif., and he has a wealth of experience in the NFL. Fangio has previously been the defensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans. He previously worked as a linebackers coach for John Harbaugh with the Baltimore Ravens too.
