The Denver Broncos may be closing on in hiring their next head coach.
The Broncos nearly a dozen interviews with potential head coaching candidates. Some of the more intriguing names who've interviewed include Kellen Moore, Dan Quinn and Eric Bieniemy. Only one of the three find themselves at the top of the Broncos' reported candidate list.
Per Broncos insider Benjamin Allbright, Quinn is one of three finalists for the job. He's joined by Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon and Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
It's worth noting two of the potential finalists are defensive-minded head coaches. The Broncos would clearly like to stick in that direction.
Dan Quinn would make plenty of sense for a Denver Broncos team that'd like to stick with a defensive-minded identity. He has the experience and knows how to hire the right coordinators.
When Quinn was head coach in Atlanta, Kyle Shanahan was his offensive coordinator. The two took the Falcons to the Super Bowl. We all know what happened there.
Quinn deserves another chance as a head coach. He worked wonders with the Cowboys defense this past season and he'd likely do the same in Denver. His vision for the offensive side of the ball is just as important, though.
Denver's coaching search should heat up here in a hurry as the playoffs progress.
