Broncos hire another Bears assistant in Brandon Staley

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) New Broncos head coach Vic Fangio isn't just bringing his defensive philosophies from Chicago. He plucked outside linebackers coach Brandon Staley off the Bears' staff and is interviewing Ed Donatell about becoming Denver's defensive coordinator.

Donatell has spent the last four seasons as the Bears' defensive backs coach, coinciding with Fangio's stint as Chicago's defensive coordinator before his hiring in Denver last week.

A former defensive coordinator in Green Bay and Atlanta, Donatell has twice coached the secondary in Denver, first for Mike Shanahan from 1995 to 1999 and again for Josh McDaniels in 2000.
