The Denver Broncos are one of several teams in need of a new head coach this offseason. The pressure is on this front office to deliver with its next hiring after Nathan Hackett crashed and burned in under a year at the helm.

Broncos Jim Harbaugh Rumors

Denver has officially started its interviews for the opening with a high-profile name.

The Broncos held a virtual interview with Jim Harbaugh on Monday, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The Michigan head coach is viewed as one of the top candidates this offseason following several successful years with the Wolverines.

Harbaugh is far from the only option in the hunt, though. Denver has also requested permission to speak with Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, San Francisco DC DeMeco Ryans and Los Angeles Rams DC Raheem Morris. Former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is also in the running, though the Broncos will need to meet the asking price for a potential trade.

Denver also has a serious internal candidate in current DC Ejiro Evero. He's respected as a top defensive mind in the league after winning a Super Bowl with the Rams in 2021 and helping the Broncos finish among the best in the NFL again despite several major injuries this season.

It remains to be seen which candidates Denver is granted permission to speak with, and which requests possibly get denied. Regardless, buzz around this job is sure to heat up as more teams are eliminated from the playoffs.
