The Denver Broncos begin interviewing head coach candidates on Wednesday. What rumors and reports are floating around Broncos Country?
The Denver Broncos’ head coaching search is underway, and the team will officially begin interviewing candidates when they host Boulder, CO native Chuck Pagano for an interview on Wednesday.
The latest on Chuck Pagano
Pagano’s interview with the Broncos will be the first in their head coaching search, which right now has no clear favorite.
That’s an interesting nugget there from Ian Rapoport. What does he mean by “perhaps into tomorrow”? Would the Broncos really spend time over the course of a couple of days interviewing a coaching candidate?
I guess if Rap Sheet says so.
Right now, Pagano would rank fourth or fifth on my personal preferred list of Broncos candidates. If the Broncos hire him, I’ll jump on board and hope for the best but there have been a lot of poor reviews from Colts fans (which we should expect) to go along with Pagano’s solid win/loss record as a coach with Indianapolis.
He won more games than he lost and his team even made some noise in the 2014 postseason, but Pagano was apparently not the best innovator. I reached out to a Colts source on Wednesday who had this to say of Pagano:
“No innovation. No scheme tactics. Meathead coach who didn’t hold players accountable.”
Pretty much every endorsement from Colts fans has been the same.
Regardless of what Colts fans think, however, Pagano is getting an interview in Denver on Wednesday and has already gotten another interview with the Green Bay Packers.
Keep this in your back pocket, but Pagano could also be a defensive coordinator candidate after spending a year away from football in 2018.
Keep in mind with what Colts fans are saying that Pagano’s endorsement from them is not going to be much different from what Vance Joseph’s endorsement would be from Broncos fans. This is a coach who failed to get his team where fans thought they should be, so the evaluations are going to be harsh.
