Two down, four to go.
The Broncos made official what had long been anticipated, with executive John Elway tweeting out word that the team had reached a deal with Vance Joseph to be their next head coach.
The deal was expected as soon as Joseph hung around overnight and returned to Broncos facilities this morning.
The 44-year-old Joseph spent last year as defensive coordinator in Miami, and it’s not as if the Dolphins defense was dominant. But he’s worked with a number of respected defensive coaches along the way, and was clearly someone Elway zeroed in on quickly.
That leaves four jobs open, with vacancies in Los Angeles, Buffalo, San Francisco and San Diego still on the board.
