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.

Fred Warner has proven that he can do it all. That's why the San Francisco 49ers recently locked up their star linebacker to a massive contract extension, ensuring he remains with the team for years to come. Warner represents a change in the prototypical NFL linebacker. Athleticism and versatility have become more important than the massive linebackers who were once the prototype. Who better to comment on that than the 49ers new defensive coordinator, DeMeco Ryans, who played the position for 10 seasons at a weight of around 250 pounds? Now, Warner is the new form factor for NFL linebackers, and that has Ryans excited about the player's future. "I think the way the game is changing with a lot more passing, a lot of spread offenses, you know, there's a lot of

Step aside, Jalen Hurd. Well, at least for today. While the 6'5, 220 third-year wideout has been the talk of the fans, especially after suiting up in pads for team activities Tuesday, Trent Sherfield was the man of the moment, as he gained praise for his performance from head coach Kyle Shanahan, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and special teams coordinator Richard Hightower. Sherfield's main moment came on a 65-yard touchdown off of a deep pass from Trey Lance, who surprisingly joined the first unit for some snaps after Shanahan indicated that would not happen during Monday's press conference.
