Report: Broncos down to three potential head coach candidates
The Denver Broncos have already narrowed their coaching search significantly, according to a report.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Broncos are considering Mike Munchak, Brian Flores, and Vic Fangio for their head coaching position, and at the moment there are no other candidates for the opening.
While, the #Packers and #Browns do a wide-ranging search, the #Broncos’ is much smaller: Mike Munchak, Brian Flores, Vic Fangio. That’s it as of now. Mike Shanahan and still-#Ravens coach John Harbaugh are not on the radar.

The likelihood is that one of these three will be the next Denver coach, replacing the fired Vance Joseph. One member of the next coach’s staff may already be determined as well.
The Broncos appear to know what they want. Flores and Fangio are both defensive-minded coaches, which fits with the defense-first route Denver has taken in recent years. All three candidates have options outside of Denver, so the Broncos will have to consider that as well.
