Broncos trim coaching list

The first round of interviews for the Broncos head coaching job appears to be over.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the Broncos have determined the top three: Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison,  Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and former Panthers coach John Fox.  It’s expected the three men will return for second interviews.  This means Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and former Broncos interim coach Eric Studesville are out of the mix.

NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora “continues to hear rumblings” that Dennison is the man to beat for the job.  ESPN’s Adam Schefter also said that Dennison appears to be a “name to focus on” in the Broncos search.

Denver hopes to have their head coach in place by the middle of next week.  That would seemingly eliminate adding any other possibilities to their list.
