Vance Joseph is likely out.
After one season as the Broncos head coach, Vance Joseph is not likely to return for a second season.
According to Adam Schefter who appeared on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown, Joseph is “likely out” after a disappointing season. A rash of injuries and poor quarterback play plagued the Broncos this season, and it looks like Joseph is going to be the scapegoat for the team’s issues.
Broncos’ HC Vance Joseph faces increasingly longer odds at being retained and returning for his second season in Denver, league sources tell ESPN.

NFL analysts predicted Denver would compete for an AFC West title, but are now poised to finish last in the division with a current 5-10 record.
Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch battled injuries this season, forcing the Broncos to turn to former Denver quarterback Brock Osweiler.
If Joseph is fired, he’ll have lasted just one season.
