Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison interviewed for the Denver Broncos’ head coaching position today in Denver. DenverBroncos.com posted a behind-the-scenes look at his arrival at the team’s facilities and interactions with Broncos executives, among them his former teammate John Elway.
Before joining the Texans in 2010, Dennison played and coached for the Broncos for 24 seasons.
“It’s a position and an organization that it’s an honor just to be mentioned,” Dennison says in the video. “I worked for Denver for a while, whether I was playing or coaching. I like – I love the state of Colorado. Like is kind of an easy word. Love is a better word. I love the Broncos. It’s just an opportunity that would be great.”
Dennison is one of five candidates that the Broncos have identified in their head coaching search, along with Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, former Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox, Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and Broncos 2010 interim head coach Eric Studesville.
Per Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos will call back two or three finalists for second interviews soon and hope to have a new head coach hired by the middle of next week.
