Munchak, 58, withdrew from consideration for the Cardinals job last year after they wanted to interview him a second time.

Munchak reportedly has “strong interest” in the Broncos job.

The Hall of Fame offensive lineman coached the Titans from 2011-13, going 22-26. He has served as offensive line coach in Pittsburgh for the past five years.

  1. Who can really blame him. Going to be tough for them to hire anyone of note. Who would want to coach this dumpster fire, where there is a GM already in place and a front office that has proven they have no clue how to conduct a draft.

    I’ve said it before and will keep saying it. This team will never get to the next level until Ross sells.

  2. Miami is one of the most beautiful places in the country with fantastic weather and sunning women. Ross can’t even get guys to come into town for a quick meeting and a free steak.

  3. Not sure what you mean about not knowing how to draft? Miami has done a decent job with the draft. Not every player is a home run but there are some solid players that have been drafted lately.
    Stop interviewing people just to do it. Go make an offer to the coach you want instead of talking to ever joe blow out there.

  4. Strong Rumors say they are leaning towards Kris Richard from Dallas anyway. While I would love to see Rizzi promoted from within, this is the best candidate. He put together the Secondary of the Seahawks and did a nice job with the Cowboys who had far less talent. With Ariens taking the Tampa job, and the Harbaugh Ravens Trade not happening; this could be a done deal. Hey, anything buy Gase and he buddy Burke.

  5. They had a 50/50 shot when they deemed that safety was their top need and they chose the wrong guy. Fitzpatrick is decent but in a different class than James. As far as Gesicki is concerned, maybe they should’ve watched more game tape and less combine tape as there were about 4 TE’s taken quite a bit later who have performed better, some of whom were higher rated. Baker was a decent pick.

  6. Building a team from scratch is what’s required. Nothing will be given too you in Miami. The opportunity is there if you have what it takes. One thing is for certain. You must give the job to someone who really wants this job. Darren Rizzi so far has been the only one who wants to be Miami’s head coach. If Grier can get him the talent… maybe its his time.

  7. This may be a case where he just wants to coach the Broncos for reasons known to only him. For all we know the Broncos could be his child hood team. He may be a secret fan of the Broncos. Or he may have some type of connection with city of Denver …..who really knows why but him

  8. My guess is Rizzi doesn’t get the offer and Flores does and takes it. 1st black coach in Miami’s history and it probably is the right choice for both the Dolphins and Flores.

    His connections to Denver are well documented. He has a daughter and granddaughter there. Same agent as Elway.

    Munch is obviously a great position coach. Great position coaches or coordinators don’t always make great HCs. Not saying the Titans are the Broncos, but Tennessee fans weren’t exactly mourning for the halcyon days of him being HC when he left. I’d be pretty cautiously optimistic on this if I were a Broncos fan.

  10. If you haven’t got a decent QB and a good spine it doesn’t matter who the coach is. All these guys are good at what they do and some have been HC before and failed probably because their players were not consistent enough. Krafty Kraft got lucky when the Browns folded and Belichick became available, Belichick got lucky when the Patriots passed on Brady numerous times before picking him. Who the hell knows who’s going to be good. But if you have decent QB you have a chance.
