A second-year NFL head coach might not make it to the end of his contract. According to a new report from Pro Football Talk, the Denver Broncos are expected to move on from head coach Vance Joseph at the end of the season.
The report suggests general manager John Elway wanted to fire Joseph after his first season with the Broncos after he led the team to a 5-11 record. Elway reportedly wanted to hire former Denver Broncos Super Bowl-winning head coach Mike Shanahan to replace Joseph.
However, Joseph returned for another season, but the Broncos are just 6-8 on the year and are facing back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 1971-72.
Here's more from PFT:
Unless Elway changes his mind (which is always possible), coach Vance Joseph’s tenure as the head coach is expected to end after only two years, per a league source.
Joseph is 11-19 in his two seasons as the team's head coach and might not make it into his third year.
