During the Denver Broncos’ press conference today, interim head coach Eric Studesville spoke about the direction he will have for the team over the last four games of the season. Without getting into specifics, Studesville said, “A change has been made. With change comes adjustments. We’re going to do some things different.” He went on to say that the team will do small things on the day-to-day level to bring excitement back to the players.
On if he spoke with Josh McDaniels: “Josh wished me the best of luck and supported me.” Studesville also talked with Perry Fewell, who became Buffalo Bills interim head coach in 2009. Studesville was on the Bills’ staff that year.
Studesville, who asked his wife about taking the position, admitted this is a great opportunity for him (“All I can [do] is my best, right here, right now”), but this team and its fans are his top priority: “My No. 1 focus for the fans is putting a product on the field that we can be proud of.”
Studesville was “surprised and humbled and honored” to become the Broncos head coach, but is now ready to play the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
