Eric Studesville named Broncos’ interim coach

Eric Studesville will take over as head coach of the Denver Broncos for the rest of the season after today’s firing of Josh McDaniels.

Studesville is in his first year as the Broncos’ running backs coach. Now he’ll serve as interim head coach for the final four games of 2010.

“I am very appreciative of the trust that Mr. Bowlen and the entire Denver Broncos organization have shown in me,” Studesville said in a statement. “Although the circumstances that this opportunity resulted from are unfortunate, I am excited to lead this football team. We have a great group of players and coaches who are committed to finishing the season on a promising note and making our fans proud of this team.”

Prior to arriving in Denver this year, Studesville spent six seasons coaching the running backs in Buffalo and three years coaching the running backs with the Giants.

Studesville has also served as a quality control coach with the Bears and been an assistant at several colleges. This is his first head-coaching position.

    Who? Is Al Davis advising Bowlen now?
    Maybe this will play out like Kiffen-Davis-Cable and three years from now Broncos fans will be celebrating .500 football.

    Quality control coach? What does he do – check to see if all the players are the same size and color, and throw out the rotten ones?

    I once took a gay cruise from Fire Island, to Key West Fla to Rehoboth Beach Delaware with Florio. We never made it to Studville but it sounds Thuper (Super with a lisp)!

    Wow, that’s a head coaching resume I can hang my team’s future on. I would have fired Mickey D at the end of the season before I would put a r-backs coach in the head job. Unfortunately, senility sets in on some owners before anyone realizes it. Who is the DC, or OC? They must really suck.

    sandiegobuffalo – do you write all your own material?

    This is a ploy.

    I assume (by the obama comment) that the int coach is black….

    Therefore he will automatically get an interview for the full time head coach.

    The broncos can ‘hire’ anyone they want (gruden) and still not get fined under the rooney rule…

    you’d think a conspiracy site like this would lead with that insight… except they are stupid

    Can we presume that he was the rat?

    Actually, it has more of the feel of the Bill Callahan implosion that cost the Raiders more of this decade… so I’m guessing 7-10 years from now Bronco fans may be celebrating .500 football. The Raiders got old and lost all of their talent under Callahan. McDaniels traded away almost all of their young talent because he had a chip on his shoulder… I’d be surprised if the Broncos come any where near respectability for at least 5 years for sure.
