The Denver Broncos are preparing to swing for the fences to find their next Head Coach.
Following a massive trade for Seattle Seahawks, QB, Russell Wilson, the Denver Broncos were bonafide pre-season Super Bowl contenders. However, a lackluster season from Wilson coupled with some questionable decisions from first-year Head Coach, Nathaniel Hackett, saw the former Green Bay Packers’ Offensive Coordinator be let go from his duties as the club’s Head Coach with a few weeks remaining in the regular season.
Let’s take a quick look at who has manned the sidelines for the Denver Broncos in the club’s history.

Reported Head Coach Interviews
- Ejiro Evero: Denver Broncos Defensive Coordinator

- Dan Quinn: Dallas Cowboys Defensive Coordinator

Denver Broncos Head Coach Prediction
The next Head Coach of the Denver Broncos will be…Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh.
Harbaugh is the pick for the Broncos for a myriad of reasons. The first being the club’s clear want for a big name as they’ve requested interviews with both Harbaugh and former New Orleans Saints coach, Sean Payton. While names like DeMeco Ryans, Dan Quinn, Raheem Morris, and the team’s current DC, Ejiro Evero are possibilities, as the organization have scheduled and requested interviews with each of them, it’s clear the team wants to make a splash, this winter and secure a massive name to lead the way and get Russell Wilson back on track.
Denver’s current roster is certainly capable of more than what they did, this season (5-12), and with the correct hire, the Broncos may be able to live up to their lofty 2022 expectations when this coming August rolls around.
