Broncos coach Vic Fangio completed the hiring of defensive coordinator Ed Donatell and outside linebackers coach Brandon Staley on Tuesday.

Donatell has worked with Fangio for the last eight years, and Staley has served as an assistant under him for two years.

Fangio said last week he will call the Broncos’ defensive plays.

In a statement, Fangio said called Donatell a “great fit. … Having worked very closely with him for a number of years, Ed has a strong understanding of the entire defense from the front end to the back end with the defensive backs being his specialty. He’s a very good teacher and believes in the fundamentals in the classroom and on the field. We’re thrilled to add Ed to our coaching staff and welcome him back to the Broncos.”
