The Broncos are casting a wide net in their search for a new head coach. Only a day after firing Vic Fangio, the Broncos have requested to interview at least six assistant coaches.

The latest is Aaron Glenn.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports the Broncos requested permission from the Lions to interview their defensive coordinator.

Glenn followed Lions head coach Dan Campbell from New Orleans, where the two worked together five seasons.

Glenn, a three-time Pro Bowler in his playing career, began his NFL coaching career with the Browns as their assistant defensive backs coach in 2014-15. He joined the Saints as defensive backs coach in 2016.

The Broncos also want to talk to Patriots linebackers coach Jerod Mayo, Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.

  1. I hope they don’t hire him. He’s done an incredible job for the Lions this year with most of the D out and playing UDFAs, practice squaders and street FAs.

  2. Aaron will get a HC chance sooner or later. He was a great defensive backfield coach for the Saints. Plus being from the Parcells tree (he played for Parcells with the NYJ and was one of his “guys”, and under Sean Payton for several years) is not a bad thing
