Denver Broncos may have already decided to fire Vance Joseph


According to multiple reports, the Denver Broncos are likely going to open the 2018 season with their fourth head coach since the 2014 season.

Broncos’ HC Vance Joseph faces increasingly longer odds at being retained and returning for his second season in Denver, league sources tell ESPN.

As @AmyTrask pointed out, one thing to note in the Broncos’ coaching decision is whether John Elway believes there’s someone better out there than Vance Joseph …

#Broncos coach Joseph enters finale with uncertain future. Players offered support for weeks. Joseph has not been assured will be back. That’s a uneasy spot to be in going into today’s game. If change, Broncos would be seeking fourth head coach in five seasons. #Denver7

Joseph’s job security has been in question ever since the Broncos went on an eight-game losing streak after opening the season with a 3-1 record. The mounting losses were always a glaring issue, but what may ultimately end up costing the first-year head coach his job is the fashion in which the Broncos lost games in 2017.

Denver has an overall record of 5-10 going into their season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs. Of those 10 losses, eight have come by double digits, and four have come by 20 points or more.

For a point of reference, the 0-15 Cleveland Browns have only one loss of 20 or more points.

At 45 years old, Joseph likely still has several years left in his NFL coaching career. When it comes down to it, though, he simply may not have been ready for a head-coaching job – especially with a franchise that has such high expectations.
