3 coaches ‘in the mix’ to join Broncos’ coaching staff

Denver Broncos new head coach Sean Payton has quickly started assembling his new coaching staff at Dove Valley.

After allowing Ejiro Evero out of his contract, the Denver Broncos have an opening at defensive coordinator. The team has already put in interview requests with Brian Flores and Sean Desai for the DC opening, and it’s probably worth noting that Desai has removed himself from consideration for the Minnesota Vikings’ DC position.

Meanwhile, three other coaches are “in the mix” to join Payton’s staff, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis: former Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, ex-New Orleans Saints run game coordinator/tight ends coach Dan Roushar and ex-Saints co-defensive coordinator/secondary coach Kris Richard. All three coaches have worked under Payton in the past.

Elsewhere on the coaching front, Brian Schottenheimer, who served as quarterback Russell Wilson‘s offensive coordinator with the Seattle Seahawks from 2018-2020, has been hired by the Dallas Cowboys as an OC. There had been some speculation that the Broncos might show interest in Schottenheimer, but he’ll land in Dallas instead.
