As far as coaching vacancies that needed to be filled prior to the 2017 none was more surprising than that of the Denver Broncos. Gary Kubiak decided to step down and the search was on for the next head coach of the team. That search ended today when the Broncos decided to bring in Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph to be the next leader of the team.
Jospeh has been coaching in the NFL since 2005. He worked in San Francisco for six seasons; five as the team's defensive back's coach. He then had stops as the DB coach in Houston (2011-2013) and in Cincinnati (2014-2015) before becoming the defensive coordinator in Miami for the 2016 season. He will inherit arguably the best defense in the league in Denver. The coaching staff still needs to be assembled but rumors are Joe Woods will move from coaching the secondary to the defensive coordinator position.
