The Denver Post's Woody Paige reports that the Denver Broncos will ask the New York Giants permission to interview defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and the New Orleans Saints for permission to talk with their defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams. The Saints are in the playoffs, the Giants are not.
Like current Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey, both Fewell and Williams were head coaches for the Buffalo Bills. Fewell was the interim head coach for the Bills in 2009 following Dick Jauron's dismissal with seven games left in the season. The Bills went 3-4 over that span. The Broncos' interim head coach Eric Studesville, who will also receive an interview with the team, was on Fewell's staff in 2009.
Williams was the Bills' head coach from 2001 through 2003, preceding Mularkey. He went 17-31 in three seasons, topping at 8-8 in 2002. Mularkey remains the only coach in the new millennium to give Buffalo a winning record at 9-7 in 2004.
Paige expects more name to be added to the list over the next few days. The Broncos are taking their time on this decision.
