It appears the Denver Broncos have their sights set on a new head coaching candidate.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that Miami Dolphins' defensive coordinator Vance Joseph has emerged as the "frontrunner" for Denver's head-coaching vacancy.
As per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Joseph is set to meet with the Broncos' brass in Denver on Tuesday. The club completed four-hour interviews with Kansas City Chiefs' special teams coordinator Dave Toub on Friday and Atlanta Falcons' offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan on Saturday.
Rapoport notes, Denver's brass came away impressed with Joseph in 2015, when he interviewed for the gig that ultimately went to former head coach Gary Kubiak.
"Had Gary Kubiak not gotten the job, John Elway made it known it would've been Vance Joseph who was the Broncos' head coach," Rapoport said.
Gary Kubiak was forced to retire at the end of this season due to health issues, meaning that Joseph may be in line for the job shortly.
