The Bears have reportedly landed Vic Fangio, and the Redskins DC search will continue. Joe Barry time?
The Redskins wanted to have the DC job filled last week, but Fangio's availability after being passed over for the 49ers Head Coaching job delayed those plans. San Diego Chargers LB coach Joe Barry was reportedly the candidate they planned on hiring, and he could still be the backup plan if the team can't come to terms with Fangio. It was reported earlier today that Clancy Pendergast was also interviewed for the position two weeks ago. The Redskins DC search has led to 7 known interviews for the job, and has been going for almost 3 weeks.
Vic Fangio has decided to join John Fox's staff in Chicago. Skins were very interested. Fangio made his decision today

Fangio mulled his decision for several days. Both CHI and WSH wanted him badly. Had a tall chore in front of him at either spot— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 20, 2015
