Vance Joseph becomes Broncos’ new head coach

Jan 11, 2017 at 11:52 AM--


It's pretty safe to say that former Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph will no longer be meeting with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Joseph has signed a 4-year deal to become the new head coach of the Denver Broncos.


Joseph has spent the past two days meeting with the Broncos and was to meet with the 49ers if he left without a deal. He had 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 has run the Miami 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.

As far as head coach candidates go, the 49ers have met with New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Buffalo Bills interim head coach Anthony Lynn, Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay, and Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.

Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tom Cable remains as the only known head coach candidate that the 49ers have not yet met with.

Kyle Shanahan: Is the young, "cool," and "fearless" coach's old-school mentality holding the 49ers back?

By Chris Wilson

The San Francisco 49ers describe their head coach as a "detailed wizard," and an "aggressive guru," but Kyle Shanahan's actions -- and words -- tell a different story of a man struggling to find a path to greatness. Prior to the San Francisco 49ers' NBC Sunday Night Football matchup with the Los Angeles Rams, sideline reporter Michelle Tafoya asked each player from both teams for three words which best describe their respective head coach. The point of the exercise was to highlight the similarities between the two young coaches, which was a common theme throughout the broadcast. Four of the words provided were identical, and the remainder were relatively similar. However, Shanahan's descriptors formed the image of a "smart" and "relentless"

His numbers weren't perfect, but aside from that, things went as well as they possibly could have for 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in his first game against his former team on Sunday. Garoppolo and the 49ers marched into Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Sunday and delivered a 33-6 drubbing of the New England Patriots in the first meeting between the two teams since the 2017 trade that sent Garoppolo from New England to San Francisco in exchange for a second-round draft pick. The loss was the worst home defeat the Patriots have had in their 20-plus seasons with Bill Belichick as head coach and left Garoppolo on a high note in his return to his former home. "It was an exciting night," Garoppolo told reporters after the game after throwing for
