Vance Joseph Will Return for Second Season as Head Coach
The Denver Broncos will be retaining head coach Vance Joseph for a second season after the team finished 5-11 in the 2017 campaign.
Happy New Year, Broncos Country. First big news of 2018 is that Vance Joseph will indeed be the head coach next season. As reported, the team decided to retain head coach Vance Joseph for the 2018 season.
The season was a disappointment for the Denver Broncos. After a 3-1 start to the campaign, there was plenty of optimism. Straight out of the bye, Denver would lose eight games in a row. Most of the games saw a lot of turnovers, bad quarterback play, and horrible execution on the coaching.
Despite reports on Sunday that Vance Joseph would be fired, the team decided to give him a second chance. However, I am certain that John Elway will have him on a very short leash. To me, the writing was on the wall when it was reported that the coordinators would be retained.
However, they are still awaiting the fate of Brock Olivio, who might not be around depending on what they are looking at.
I believe that, unless it was worse than 5-11 or if the players did not speak up, Vance Joseph was going to be safe. It was just a feeling I had. The Denver Broncos have never fired a head coach after one season. So, based on history, I had a feeling he would be retained.
John Elway had this to say about his conversation with Joseph.

To me, that shows that both men were on the same page. With the right moves, the Denver Broncos will hopefully improve from their disastrous 2017 campaign.
Hopefully this was the right decision. This offseason will be very interesting. Let’s Go Broncos!
