The Denver Broncos became the latest team to part ways with their head coach after firing Nathaniel Hackett on Monday. Now Denver finds itself in a familiar place with a vacancy at HC, just like last offseason.

There's certainly a ton riding on the Broncos nailing their next hire, so they're bringing in a notable person to help them.

Denver Broncos Head Coach Search

Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice will be involved in the team's search for Hackett's replacement. She's part of a group that's expected to help find a new head coach this offseason.

News of Rice's involvement shocked many, but she has a long-established football background. She's been on the College Football Playoff committee since 2013 and had ties to several NFL franchises. She was also a candidate for the Cleveland Browns' head-coaching opening in 2018.

Rice's connection to Denver is obvious as well. Not only did she grow up a Broncos fan and go to school in the area, but she's also part of the Walton-Penning ownership group that took over the franchise last offseason.

It'll be all hands on deck in Denver as the team looks to put this disastrous campaign behind them.
