Broncos have 10 candidates for head coach opening

By Jon Heath

After firing head coach Vic Fangio on Sunday, Denver Broncos general manager George Paton is now responsible for finding Fangio’s replacement.

So far, Paton has requested interviews with ten coach candidates.

“We’re excited to learn more about some of these great candidates,” Paton said during his end-of-season press conference on Jan. 9. “It’s going to be a comprehensive and a collaborative process to find the best head coach for the Broncos. We’re going to be thorough. We’re going to be open minded. We know this is a critical decision, and we’re going to get it right.”

Here is the list of known candidates:

1. Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy (52)
2. Cowboys DC Dan Quinn (51)
3. Lions DC Aaron Glenn (49)

4. Packers OC Nathaniel Hackett (42)
5. Eagles DC Jonathan Gannon (39)
6. Packers QBs coach Luke Getsy (37)
7. Bengals OC Brian Callahan (37)

8. Rams OC Kevin O’Connell (36)
9. Patriots LBs coach Jerod Mayo (35)
10. Cowboys OC Kellen Moore (33)

Most of the Broncos’ head coach interviews will happen next week, and Paton has said the team will take its time in its search, so fans shouldn’t expect a hire to happen immediately.
