Gary Miller:
Nothing official but I'm getting signals Broncos may not add any other candidates. Also getting anti-Koetter tweets from ASU fans.

Soooo, lets make this an official poll.

If they don't add more to the list i'll be disappointed. I'd like for them to at least take a look at the coaches on the teams in the playoffs

tsiguy96
01-10-2011, 01:02 PM
honestly, dont see how any of them fit. we are slightly better suited to 3-4 due to LB skills and depth being far greater than DL, so that knocks fox and fewell off. dennison is gonna bring back socal's beloved zone blocking, but another shanahan disciple need we do not. i still think mularkey is best fit for this team, but may not be an option.

if I had to choose I would take Fox or Fewell......I would have loved Rivera.....dang. Fox I think could do some good things and is the best of this list IMO

I don't get the love for this guy:

During the 2001–2002 seasons, Mornhinweg was the head coach of the Detroit Lions, where he compiled a 5-27 record.

I might have missed it, but I don't remember seeing that there is some official list of candidates. We know who's been scheduled, but there's a ton of speculation out there without confirmation. Seems odd to report that there are no more being added to a list, when no one actually knows who's actually on the supposed list anyway.

to be fair, it took a new GM for them to actually start winning.

but i dont think a coaching stint 10 years ago should preclude you from having one ever again.

01-10-2011, 01:10 PM
ya know, gregg williams isnt a bad choice. sure they got torched by seahawks, but even the best defenses year in and year out give up a big one. and seattle, from what i heard last week, has the best homefield advantage in NFL over last 10 years...

i reallllly want to stay in an aggressive 3-4 defense.

cmhargrove
01-10-2011, 01:10 PM
Still holding out for the best candidate. Our defense will definitely "bulk up" and have the best supplements money can buy. If you mess with this coach, he'll kick your ass...

roto:

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Panthers are expected to name Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera the new head coach in Carolina on Tuesday.
Rivera is already contacting staff members, and FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that the Panthers have begun informing previous interviewees that they'll no longer be part of the search. Prior to getting the job in Carolina, Rivera interviewed for a whopping eight head coaching positions, often as a means for those teams to satisfy the Rooney Rule. Rivera, 49, will become the fourth head coach in Panthers history. All four -- also Dom Capers, George Seifert, and John Fox -- were former defensive coordinators.

Elway is quoted by Peter King as saying he "definitely" wanted a guy with head coaching experience, either at the pro or college level. That would seemingly eliminate Dennison as a candidate. So, why even bring him in for an interview? My theory: they want want to hire one of the defensive-minded guys as head coach (I'd prefer Fox, but he may be out of our price range, so I'm going to guess Fewell) and pair them with Dennison as assistant HC/offensive coordinator.

ØrangeÇrush

I'm going Mike Mularky. I want a defensive HC, but he makes too much sense in that he can devise an innovative offense that will utilize the skill of our QB.

That actually makes a lot of sense. That would explain away why they didn't interview Rivera.

BroncoInferno

That actually makes a lot of sense. That would explain away why they didn't interview Rivera.

The complication with that theory is that in order to hire a guy under contract with another team, you have to offer him a promotion. Dennison is already assistant head coach/OC with Houston, so they would have to agree to release him from his contract. They might not go along with that. Same thing applies to Mularkey. So, I'd venture a guess that the fall back for OC would be Koetter, who is just an OC with Jacksonville, so we could offer the assistant HC promotion. Let me make clear that I am not necessarily endorsing this move, but it's just a hunch based on Elway's comment that he "definitely" wants a guy with prior HC experience as head coach. If Fox is willing to take a pay cut (and, really, he's going to have to in order to land another HC gig, no one is going to pay him $6.5 million, the question is whether or not what we are willing to pay is in line with the sort of pay cut he's willing to take), I'd say he's probably going to be the first choice with Dennison as first choice for OC/assistant HC. But financial/contractual complications will likely prevent that from coming off. So, I'm going to say Fewell with the Dennison getting offered a lateral move for more money from Houston, and Koetter getting the job if that fails. I'm assuming that Mularkey is not going to leave a playoff team with an established young QB for anything other than an HC gig, so that's why I don't mention him as one of the realistic OC possibilities.

tsiguy96

they will not allow dennison to leave for essentially the same position.

Why? We're not any closer to having a good defense with either scheme. Both can be successful and with almost half the league running the 3-4 nowadays there's no longer a competitive advantage in the draft.

Wouldn't you just want the best coach regardless of what he's going to run?

Williams runs a 4-3 at New Orleans and not sure who Mularkey would bring in as DC and what defense he would run.....but Atlanta runs a 4-3 as well.

Its Gruden or Cowher. were just bringing all these nobodies to throw everyone off the scent. We cant bring one of these big names in without hiring them or we might start a bidding war. So were interviewing everyone else on our list so when we do bring one of them in we can compare them to these other scrubs and see if we really do want to go with the big name. :) Were the broncos we are the masters at making wierd shiat happen.

Dennison
Fox
Fewell

Dennison because of his ties to the Broncos and because he is the smartest guy on the list. I think he would be very good at managing a team. However, I don't believe he's the best OC out there. So, if we hire Dennison...it would be very important that he hire two outstanding Coordinators to support him.

you can say that about every poor head coach in the NFL. see todd haley, and see the results of the offense after it was announced weis wouldnt be back next year. blown out twice in a row to end their season.

may not be getting a real job offer yet, and i dont think he fits in denver based on this teams makeup (offensive people) and lack of real 4-3 guys.

2 more DC types done, leaves us with fox, williams, mularkey (maybe), koetter, studesville, dennison.

I said in another thread a few days ago that I was a student at ASU when Koetter was there and we would be in big trouble if we hired him. Since I said that all my friends have texted me, emailed me, etc. laughing at the Broncos and making fun of us for even considering him. Embarassing

Fox might be interested in the San Diego State HC job now that Brady Hoke has taken the Michigan job.

He said he's open to returning to college and back to his alma mater if the position opens up though I think he'd still prefer to stay in the NFL if possible.

Boomhauer
01-11-2011, 10:41 PM
Name the new HC
There are four guys that I'd have no objection to seeing in Denver, though each has their +/-'s. Koetter is the best option, followed by a near-tie between Fewell and Dennison. Last is the seat-warming administrator Fox. Evaluations in order of HC ability............

OC Dirk Koetter: A complete offensive mind that will balance run/pass, including knowing speed/power running and WC/vert passing. An experienced QB coach that will develope and get the most from who's under center. The best player-evaluator of these four which will raise the Broncos from worst-roster to competitive in one offseason. Though an Offense guy, he's had his feet wet with defense when a HC. Three years as OC, preceded by 6 yrs as college HC+OC and 3 yrs as college HC.

DC Perry Fewell: Very good at what he does, wether it be aginst the run, pass, turnovers and gameplanning. Gotten the most out of average players which is very important considering the Broncos' roster. No offensive or HC experience which means we'll need a solid OC and player selection would likely come from the failed mind of Xanders. Five years as a DC, preceded by 8yrs coaching secondary.

OC Rick Dennison: The best teacher of premier running attack in the NFL. When it comes to the complete trenches (OL, RB, TE + DL, LB), he's the best coach available. No experience with QBs or DBs, which would need to be emphasized through coordinators, but would create a very solid foundation for any system to work off of. No HC experience would, again, mean Xanders' personel ineptitude would continue to plague the team. One year as OC, preceded by 1 yr OL, 3 yrs OC, 5yrs OL and 4 yrs with Sp-Ts.

HC John Fox: While he got his start in the NFL in defense and has been an effective HC for Carolina this decade, he's a system manager, not a coach. Would need good coordinators to establish systems and Xanders to assemble a roster. From there, he'd work the day-to-day and gameday oversight, but don't expect him to make players, roster or the team better. Eight yrs HC, preceded by 2 yrs DC, 2 yrs unemployed (consultant), 2 yrs DC and 5 yrs secondary.

Though the topic now is HC, GM Xanders is lead Scout and negotiator, but removing him from the organization is essential to success. He's a proven failure with contracts and, likewise, would easily be replaced as Scout director. Most importantly is to end his say in personel evaluations/selection and leaving it to Elway, the new HC/coordinators and new Scout director.
