Denver Broncos: Vance Joseph to be fired at end of season
A report from ProFootballTalk says the Denver Broncos are expecting to fire head coach Vance Joseph after the season. This should come as no surprise.
The Denver Broncos will reportedly move on from head coach Vance Joseph at the end of the season, ProFootballTalk.com reports.
This move has been anticipated for quite some time. Joseph has a career head coaching record of 11-19 (.367 in almost two full seasons as the Denver Broncos head coach.
Denver has lost some close games this season. It is baffling how the team continues to lose close games. They just can’t seem to get over the hump.
Denver has beaten some really good teams this season, such as the Los Angeles Chargers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. That boosted confidence. However, they also lost to teams with losing records, such as the San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets.
The team just can’t seem to play good consistent football. One week, they play well at certain positions and awful at others. The next week, it’s the other way around.
The inconsistencies on this team have been awfully frustrating.
Now, the question becomes, who will the Broncos hire next? Mike Shanahan was considered last season but reports say that Joe Ellis blocked the move from happening.
Some names the Broncos may consider during their head coaching search are: former Vikings offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Stanford head coach David Shaw, and possibly the most often-brought up candidate: Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.
It does not appear that Shanahan will be considered this time around.
This will be the Broncos’ sixth head coaching change since the team fired long-time coach Mike Shanahan after the 2008 season. Hopefully the next head coach will be able to do much better than the current coaching staff.
A lot is expected to change in 2019. It will start with the coaching switch, along with firing and adding the next coach’s choice of coordinators.
Also expect there to be changes made at some positions on the field. It will be another interesting offseason full of change.
Change is good. Hopefully this next change will be a lot better.
