Dolphins DC Vance Joseph will meet with 49ers, Broncos

Jan 3, 2017 at 12:13 PM--


NFL Insider Rand Getlin is reporting that Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph is set to meet with both the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos for their head coaching vacancies.


Joseph has served as the defensive coordinator in Miami for just one season. Prior to that, he served as a defensive backs coach for the Cincinnati Bengals, Houston Texans, and the 49ers under both Mike Nolan and Mike Singletary.

Joseph's name has also been linked to the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, and Buffalo Bills. No meeting date has been set nor can it be at this time. NFL rules prohibit teams from interviewing coaches whose teams are playing in the first round of the playoffs. Therefore, the 49ers will have to wait to meet with Joseph until at least after their game on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Joseph has run the defense all season while head coach Adam Gase, a 2015 candidate for the 49ers' head coach job, ran the offense. That defense has ranked 18th in points allowed, 29th in yards allowed, 15th in passing yards allowed, and 30th in rushing yards allowed.

In Joseph's defense, his unit has lost a number of key starters. That's something that the 49ers can relate to and understand. "From where we've started and how we've grown through the years, guys being in and out, losing some key players, he's done a good job," Gase said of Joseph. "It's a great experience to be able to go through. You have an opportunity to do something that is one of 32 jobs. These are going to be great opportunities for him."

The 49ers already have meetings scheduled with New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Buffalo Bills interim head coach Anthony Lynn, and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

The San Francisco 49ers may fall victim to the effect of running what many consider to be a successful and innovative scheme — the poaching of talent. Despite the six-win season, the team is just a year removed from a Super Bowl appearance, and head coach Kyle Shanahan remains one of the most highly-respected offensive minds in the league. NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah points out that one of the subplots within the coach-interviewing flurry across the league is that multiple top candidates plan on running the scheme that Shanahan runs in San Francisco (h/t to Patrick Tulini). That could mean a run on assistants familiar with the system, and the 49ers have an abundance of
