Teryl Austin pulls name from consideration for Broncos head job

According to Josina Anderson, Teryl Austin has pulled his name from consideration for the Broncos' head coaching job. He was scheduled to meet with them on Friday.

Some possible reasons: Austin may be focused on the Atlanta job, for which he interviewed a second time on Thursday; he knows that Gary Kubiak is the heavy favorite for the Denver job.

Broncos to interview Gary Kubiak on Sunday

According to Jason La Canfora, Gary Kubiak has, of course, decided to interview for the Broncos' head coaching position. That meeting will take place on Sunday, per Adam Schefter.

After his hometown Houston Texans, which he coached for most of eight seasons, the Denver gig has to be a close second for Kubes as dream jobs go. He figures to be the clear frontrunner now, and it would be something of a shock if John Elway does not hire his longtime former backup and coach.

Report: Teryl Austin’s interview with Broncos canceled

As had been suggested might happen, the Broncos' Friday interview with Teryl Austin has been canceled, per Ian Rapoport. At this point, it's unknown whether the cancellation was initiated by Austin or the Broncos, but Rapoport says the meeting has not been rescheduled.

FWIW, Denver's meeting with Vance Joseph will put the team in compliance with the league's Rooney Rule, which mandates that at least one minority candidate be interviewed before a hiring is made.

Broncos will interview Vance Joseph for head job

Denver's coaching search will continue Friday with an interview of Cincy secondary coach and former CU Buffs backup quarterback Vance Joseph.

The team interviewed Adam Gase on Thursday and is scheduled to meet with Detroit DC Teryl Austin on Friday, but according to Vic Lombardi and Jeff Legwold, there's a chance that won't happen.

Falcons expected to re-interview Dan Quinn; Teryl Austin leaves Atlanta

Atlanta is expected to re-interview Seattle DC Dan Quinn as soon as Monday, although reportedly, no meeting is scheduled. The Broncos, since they did not interview Quinn during the first round, must wait until the Seahawks' season is over.

Per Vaughm McClure, Teryl Austin interviewed with the Falcons on Thursday for a second time, apparently without a contract offer. Austin is set to meet with Denver on Friday.

Broncos to formally interview Adam Gase on Thursday

The Broncos are officially interviewing Adam Gase for a possible promotion to head coach today. John Elway had met with Gase on Tuesday and Wednesday, but those were apparently not formal interviews.

Teryl Austin will interview on Friday, and the team has requested a meeting with Ravens OC Gary Kubiak.

Klis: Broncos won’t wait long for Dan Quinn, may consider Doug Marrone

The Broncos will apparently be rooting particularly hard for Green Bay on Sunday, and not just because the Seahawks demolished the Broncos in SB 48. According to Mike Klis, John Elway & Co. are unwilling to wait for SB 49's conclusion to interview Seattle DC Dan Quinn, as they would have to do if the Seahawks should prevail in the NFC title game.

Report: Dennison a possibility for Denver OC under Kubiak

If Gary Kubiak is the Broncos' next head coach, Rick Dennison could be his offensive coordinator, according to Vic Lombardi and Jeff Zrebiec. Per Zrebiec, Ravens tight ends coach Brian Pariani might also head back to Denver, where he held that position for ten years (1995-2004).

Report: Bears to hire John Fox

According to Jason Cole, John Fox is expected to get the head job in Chicago, where he'll have a quarterback more appropriate for handing the ball off, punting, kicking short field goals (better than those end zone interceptions, amirite Jay?), and not audibling.*

While Fox's split from Denver was officially termed a "parting of ways" which would suggest a mutual decision and ripping up of his contract, it's been suggested elsewhere that Fox was still owed the balance of his contract.

Falcons, Rams request interviews with Adam Gase for OC positions

Just like that, Adam Gase has gone from hot head coaching candidate to hot offensive coordinator candidate. According to multiple reports, the Falcons have requested a chance to interview Gase to run their offense, as the Rams did earlier in the day.
