New Broncos coach Vance Joseph suspended while an assistant coach at CU

BOULDER, Colo. — New Broncos coach Vance Joseph left the University of Colorado a dozen years ago while working as an assistant football coach.

In 2004, he was suspended while the university investigated reports of consensual sex that was a possible violation of school policy.

Joseph left the school for another job before the investigation was completed.

“We were aware of the report, and like all candidates, we thoroughly reviewed Vance’s background as part of this process,” the Broncos said in a statement. “This issue was resolved administratively nearly 15 years ago, and he’s moved forward from it.”
