Shanahan will probably get that Denver job. Work with Paxton Lynch and already has a studly defense in place that someone else can run for him. 

Seems like a perfect fit. If Denver goes a different direction, i'll start to gain hope that we will get to keep him.

I posted an article that says they think Johnson of Miami will get it. If Denver doesn't hire Shanny he may not get hired.

I think the Chargers is a VERY underrated job prospect for Shanny.

They have plenty of young talent, a high draft pick, and if Wade Phillips is out in Denver, he can implement his style of 3-4 out there. They already have the scheme and Bosa fits the Watt role in Houston Texans version of that defense to a t.

Rivers could pick up that scheme in a couple of seasons just like Matt did, and they could lure Alshon Jeffrey out there stretch the field. Hunter Henry already looks like the next great dual-purpose tight end, and Melvin Gordon became a first round pick based off his performance in a zone-blocking scheme in Wisconsin.

The ownership was very patient with McCoy, so Shanny could suck for a year or two, use those high picks to work on the line and eventually draft his QB of the future.

I still hold out hope that Arthur Blank will throw cash at Kyle to keep him here to help fill seats in the new stadium.

Even if we have to make Shannahan a "co-assistant head coach" or some other title.

Thing is... IF he wants to be a HC more than just getting paid than that won't matter. Only Kyle knows the answer to that.

I don't think money and a token title is gonna keep Shanahan from leaving if he wants really want to leave for a HC gig.

I like the idea but I would be concerned that Rivers doesn't have a couple of years to learn a new system. He's 35. I know that's not the end of the line but he's in the twilight of his career. Wade in San Diego could be nice, though.

The Denver Broncos’ coaching search could come to a close Tuesday, if the Broncos like what they see in Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.

Joseph is interviewing with the Broncos Tuesday and if the team is impressed he could be offered the head coaching job on the spot. Denver7’s Troy Renck reports Joseph will take the job if he receives an offer Tuesday.

Joseph is the third candidate to interview for the job after his Miami Dolphins were knocked out of the playoffs last weekend. The Broncos have also interviewed Kansas City Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanhan.

Whether Joseph leaves his interview with a new job or not, Tuesday’s interview will hold serious ramifications on the coaching search. 9News’ Mike Klis speculates that the Broncos would shift their focus to Shanahan if Joseph leaves town without the job.

The Broncos interviewed Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph at the team’s Dove Valley headquarters for nearly four hours on Tuesday, grilling him much as they did Kansas City Chiefs special-teams coordinator Dave Toub and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan last weekend.

The conversation spilled over to dinner, as Joseph and the Broncos’ contingent dined at Elway’s steakhouse.

“We enjoyed visiting with Vance Joseph at our facility today,” Broncos general manager John Elway tweeted Tuesday. “He has great leadership qualities and a strong vision of what it takes to win.”

Joseph, Toub and Shanahan are the three known candidates to succeed Gary Kubiak, who resigned as head coach at season’s end.

Joseph, a Broncos head coaching candidate in 2015 as well, was among the first possibilities to surface when Kubiak announced his resignation last week. Joseph’s 11 years of NFL coaching experience have been on the defensive side. The University of Colorado alumnus spent six years as a defensive backs coach in San Francisco (2005-10) followed by three years as Houston’s secondary coach (2011-13) under Kubiak and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. After two more years as the secondary coach for Cincinnati (2014-15), Joseph landed his first job as a coordinator a year ago as part of Adam Gase’s new staff at Miami.

But his start in football was on the other side of the ball, as a backup quarterback at CU.

“He was the brains on offense, and he ends up being an NFL defensive coordinator,” said CU teammate and former NFL receiver Michael Westbrook. “That ought to tell you something about him right there.”

While Joseph’s NFL coordinator experience is limited and his head coaching experience nonexistent, the Broncos have been impressed with his leadership skills and the way he held together a depleted group in Miami to help the Dolphins back to the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

Shanahan, 37, the son of former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan, helped the Falcons back to the playoffs after a three-year absence by turning their offense into one of the most prolific in the league. Atlanta led the NFL in scoring, averaging 33.8 points per game as quarterback Matt Ryanmorphed into a prime MVP candidate.

Kyle Shanahan’s knowledge of the X’s and O’s and his resume as an offensive coordinator have made him one of the most coveted coaching candidates this year.

“I played for a lot of offensive coordinators. Kyle is hands down my favorite,” said former offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus, who played for Shanahan at Washington from 2011-13.

Toub, a 16-year NFL coaching veteran, is the outlier, primarily because he’s the oldest (54) and the least-known of the candidates.  From the time Toub joined Andy Reid’s staff in 2013, the Chiefs have featured one of the league’s best special-teams units, according to The Dallas Morning News, continuing a track record he started with the Bears. For eight seasons (2004-11), Toub’s special teams in Chicago ranked among the top third of the league.

But perhaps his biggest selling point to Denver? That he led players of varying skill, experience and specialty. It’s a skill rarely credited to special-teams coordinators but one that made him an attractive candidate.

“Being a special-teams coach perhaps is the most communication-intensive coaching position. They have to work with everybody on the team,” said Chad Brown, a former NFL linebacker.  “Everybody on the team is at least used in an emergency special-teams role. For Toub to have that background, that ability to speak to every player on the roster and to find a role for them and coach them up in that role, I think made him an incredibly valuable head coaching candidate.”

According to the NFL Network, Joseph is scheduled to interview for head coaching jobs with the San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams in the next three days. The futures of Toub and Shanahan, meanwhile, will be delayed by the playoffs. The Falcons host the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, and the Chiefs host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in divisional-round matchups.

Well, if these reports are true, then we may keep Shanny for another year.

I think LA is still a possibility and not that bad of a job for a young coach. Goff, Gurley, some pieces on defense, you can build there if you think Goff is the answer. I guess they are down some draft picks though.

We will see. I hope to keep him around. I guess LA is also the interview he missed?
