The Denver Broncos have retained head coach Vance Joseph. He was on the hot seat late in the season, his first as an NFL head coach, before John Elway made a Twitter announcement on Monday.
Elway, the Executive Vice President of Football Operations, said that he talked with Joseph on Monday morning. He also said, “[the Broncos] believe in Vance as our head coach.”
The Broncos finished 5-11 this past season. They finished in last-place in the AFC West.
This was their worst season since the 2010 season when they finished 4-12 overall. This was the first-time they finished with a 5-11 record since the 1990 season.
Joseph, 45, was the first African-American hired as the full-time head coach in team history — and the 16th team head coach all-time. After Josh McDaniels was fired by the team in 2010, they promoted Eric Studesville on an interim basis for the rest of the season.
He replaced Gary Kubiak last year, who retired from coaching due to health concerns. Joseph was considered one of the top defensive coordinators in the league before he was hired by the Broncos.
As Elway said, the Broncos have a lot of concerns to focus on. One of their glaring needs is a franchise quarterback.
This season, they had Brock Osweiler, Paxton Lynch, and Trevor Siemian. Neither is the long-term answer.
