ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos are expected to interview Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph for the coaching position on Tuesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Sunday night.
Joseph became available after the Dolphins lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC playoffs on Sunday. Joseph’s defense allowed the Steelers to score three touchdowns on their first three possessions of the game.
Joseph has some Colorado connections. He attended the University of Colorado, where he played as a quarterback and running back from 1990 to 1995.
He later returned to CU as a defensive backs coach. Joseph went on to hold the same position at Wyoming and Bowling Green.
In the NFL, he has been a defensive coach for the San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans, Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins.
He will be the third candidate the Broncos interview for the job. The team interviewed Kansas City Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub on Friday in Kansas City, Mo., and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Atlanta on Saturday.
Many people consider Joseph a favorite for the job. He previously interviewed with the team for the coaching job two years ago when the Broncos hired Gary Kubiak.
Kubiak retired last week after the team’s 24-6 victory over the Oakland Raiders in the 2016 season finale.
