In the past, the oversized office overlooking the Broncos’ practice field was occupied by head coaches, men like Dan Reeves, Mike Shanahan, and Josh McDaniels.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that, even though the Broncos don’t have a head coach, the office has a new inhabitant.
Executive V.P. of football operations John Elway has decided to claim it.
It’s further evidence of the fact that, despite never working in an NFL front office, Elway will be completely running the show in Denver. And it also sends a clear message to the next head coach that he’ll be standing forever in Elway’s shadow.
Which is why the Broncos are relegated to sifting through D-list coaching candidates. Anyone with options quite possibly will opt to go elsewhere.
