By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to Pro Football Talk, the Denver Broncos have extended an offer to Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph to be their next head coach.’ Mike Klis says that he is “expecting Broncos general manager John Elway to offer Joseph the head coaching job on Wednesday morning.” Joseph was a front-runner for this job, along with Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

It looked early on that Shanahan would get the job because his father Mike was previously the Broncos head coach. Joseph would replace Gary Kubiak, who had to retire due to health problems.

Joseph is being advised by his agents to take as many interviews as possible, according to Pro Football Talk. This would “generate as much leverage as possible before picking a team,” PFT reports.

The San Diego Chargers were also reportedly interested in Joseph. They’re only looking at defensive-minded coaches to be their next head coach.

The 44-year-old Joseph came to the Dolphins after Adam Gase was hired by the team. He was previously the Cincinnati Bengals defensive backs coach in 2014 and 2015.

Prior to arriving in Cincinnati, he was the Houston Texans defensive backs coach from 2011 through 2013. He was also with the San Francisco 49ers from 2006 through 2010 as their defensive backs coach.

In 2005, he was the 49ers assistant defensive backs coach in 2005.

He coached in the college game as he was last with the Bowling Green Falcons in 2004 as their defensive backs coach. He also was the Colorado Buffaloes defensive backs coach in 2002 and 2003.

Joseph was also the Buffaloes graduate assistant from 1999 to 2001.
