Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that the Denver Broncos will interview interim head coach Eric Studesville for the permanent head coaching position after the current season ends. After the Broncos fired Josh McDaniels with less than two full seasons at the helm, running backs coach Studesville was promoted to the interim position. In three games so far, the team has gone 1-2 with losses to the Arizona Cardinals and the Oakland Raiders and a win over the Houston Texans.
Klis speculates that the Broncos will reach a decision on a new coach in the middle of January in order to be more circumspect than during their last hiring process.
Earlier in the week, ESPN's Bill Williamson mentioned Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey as a potential candidate for the Broncos, a name speculated earlier in December. Whoever becomes the next Broncos coach will not have as much personnel power as Josh McDaniels did, which led in part to his undoing.
