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.

The San Francisco 49ers recently signed running back Christian McCaffrey to a contract extension, securing more guaranteed money for the versatile offensive weapon. While negotiations for a contract extension with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk are ongoing, many wonder who might be next for the 49ers. Cornerbacks Deommodore Lenoir and Charvarius Ward are entering the final year of their deals. Additionally, there are questions about the future contracts of linebacker Dre Greenlaw and guard Aaron Banks. Trent Williams is signed through the 2026 season and will count $31.6 million against the salary cap this year. He is the fourth-highest-paid offensive lineman in terms of average salary. According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the tackle may soon seek a new

What would it cost the 49ers to keep Brandon Aiyuk without a new deal?

There are several ways the situation between the San Francisco 49ers and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk might play out, some more likely than others. The best scenario for both sides would be agreeing on a mutually beneficial contract extension, allowing the receiver to focus on the upcoming season and the 49ers' pursuit of Super Bowl glory. Another option would be for Aiyuk to forgo a new deal and play the 2024 season on the fifth-year option, guaranteeing him $14.124 million, significantly less than his market value. Then, the two sides could reassess their situations next offseason. A less desirable option would be Aiyuk sitting out the 2024 season or requesting a trade. While sitting out the season in its entirety might initially sound like a wrong move for the
