The Denver Broncos are expected to fire head coach Vance Joseph at the conclusion of the season. He had been the team’s head coach for the last two seasons.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Joseph is expected to be a candidate for the Cincinnati Bengals Defensive Coordinator post. Marvin Lewis has been serving as the team’s Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator.

Teryl Austin was hired as the team’s Defensive Coordinator before the start of the season. However, he was relieved of his duties during the 2018 season.

A new report from The Big Lead suggests that the Bengals will let Lewis decide when he stops coaching. If Lewis does leave the franchise after the season, Hue Jackson is expected to be the front-runner to receive the position.

Prior to being named Broncos head coach, he served one season as the Miami Dolphins Defensive Coordinator in 2016. He previously served as the Bengals Defensive Backs Coach in 2014 and 2015. 

He also was the Houston Texans Defensive Backs Coach from 2011 through 2013. Joseph also served as the San Francisco 49ers Defensive Backs Coach from 2006 through 2010. 

He served as the 49ers Assistant Defensive Backs Coach in 2005. He also was the Bowling Green Falcons Defensive Backs Coach in 2004. 

Joseph also worked in the college ranks with the Colorado Buffaloes in 2002 and 2003 as their Defensive Backs Coach. He also served as the Wyoming Cowboys Defensive Backs Coach in 2002. 

He began his coaching career as a Buffaloes Graduate Assistant from 1999 through 2001.
