  NFL Rumors: Mike McCoy may return to Broncos as OC if Vance Joseph hired as coach If the Broncos hire Vance Joseph as their new head coach following a Tuesday interview, one of the franchise’s former offensive coordinators may be coming with him.A source told Sporting News on Sunday that Joseph has spoken with Mike McCoy about returning to the Mile High City in the same role.MARVEZ: Broncos suddenly face biggest crossroads in Elway's tenureMcCoy’s work with the Broncos and success with quarterbacks who had very different styles— Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning — helped him parlay four seasons as a Broncos assistant into becoming the Chargers' head coach in 2013.

His Miami Dolphins now eliminated from the NFL postseason, Vance Joseph will head to Denver tomorrow to interview with the Broncos for their coaching vacancy. Should he be hired , he may bring a familiar face with him to the Mile High City. Joseph has reportedly reached out to Mike McCoy about joining the Broncos staff as offensive coordinator, if he is hired as head coach .

The first name connected to the Broncos by major media outlets is also a man who was a strong candidate the last time the Broncos had a head coaching vacancy. That man is Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph . Ironically, Joseph ’s interview came right after the Broncos interviewed offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who is now the head coach in Miami. The Broncos wanted to hire Joseph as their defensive coordinator, but he remained in Cincinnati as the team’s defensive backs coach before moving to Miami this past year to take a defensive coordinator position.

Vance Joseph met with the Broncos on Tuesdayand returned to Denver's facilityWednesday. There he was givenan offer to become the team's next head coach.

Joseph, who served as Miami's offensive coordinator in 2016,accepted the offer.

"He brings a leadership quality that you really love about him," said Miamicoach Adam Gase, via the Broncos' release. "He has such a great personality and such a strong personality -- that alpha-type personality where he demands a lot from players and they give him everything he has."

Report: Broncos expected to hire Dolphins DC Vance Joseph as head coach

  Report: Broncos expected to hire Dolphins DC Vance Joseph as head coach Joseph will take Gary Kubiak's place in Denver.The Denver Broncos’ head coaching job figured to be one of the most sought-after in the NFL after Gary Kubiak retired following the end of the season. They have a Super Bowl-caliber defense and youth at quarterback with most of their best assets still under contract.

To me, Vance Joseph is a great choice to replace Gary Kubiak as the Broncos Head Coach . Who is Vance Joseph and what is his background? Now one concern with a possible Joseph hire would be, who will the Offensive Coordinator? While that lingering question is a worrisome one, I believe that Joseph and Elway could court a quality candidate to come to the Mile High city to help turn the offense around.

The Denver Broncos are closing in on a deal with Vance Joseph to make him their new head coach , a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Wednesday. Joseph , 44, was the Miami Dolphins' defensive coordinator in 2016. He was scheduled to interview for the San Diego Chargers' head- coaching vacancy on Wednesday but stayed in Denver after interviewing with the Broncos on Tuesday.

Joseph had been contacted by every team with a coaching vacancy except the Jaguars, who took the interim tag off of Doug Marrone. TheChargers spoke with Josephearlier Wednesday, according to ESPN.

Joseph has risen through the coaching ranks in recent years. Before hisDolphins gig, he was a defensive backs coach for the 49ers from 2005-10, DB coach for the Texans from 2011-13 and DB coach for the Bengals from 2014-15.

Althoughinterest Josephhim has increased this offseason, he also caught the Broncos' eye in 2015, when he interviewed for their vacancy then. GM John Elway reportedly came away impressed from that interview butultimately went with Gary Kubiak.
