ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — After the hire of Vance Joseph as coach on Wednesday, Broncos fans took to social media to let the team know they want defensive coordinator Wade Phillips to stay.

Fans took to social media with the hashtag #KeepWade to get their message across to the team and general manager John Elway.

With the hire of Joseph, there is some speculation and reports that Phillips might end up with another team for the 2017 season.

After the retirement of Gary Kubiak, Phillips took to Twitter to say he’s “still hoping to be with the Broncos” in 2017.

Elway has said that the new coach will decide if Phillips will stay with the Broncos.

Phillips came to the Broncos when Kubiak was hired two years ago. He will no doubt be one of the hottest candidates for defensive coordinator positions around the NFL after his contract with the Broncos expired.

He was the mastermind behind the defense that helped the Broncos win Super Bowl 50 in February.
