Denver Broncos have let interim head coach Jerry Rosburg go

According to ESPN’s NFL insider Field Yates, the Denver Broncos have decided to let interim head coach Jerry Rosburg go. He served as the interim head coach for the team for the final two games of the season when they fired Nathaniel Hackett after their embarrassing loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Christmas.

It came out recently that Rosburg expressed interest in the Broncos’ vacant head coaching job. The report stated that he had an end-of-the-year meeting with the team and that they appreciated the plan he outlined and would consider him moving forward. However. the interest was clearly one-sided as the Broncos never officially interviewed Rosburg for the job. It became even more clear now that they have informed him that he is no longer part of the coaching staff moving forward.

As we know, Rosburg was brought in as a game management assistant for now-former head coach, Nathaniel Hackett. He was struggling with game management and time management and Rosburg was hired to help clean that up. He served in that role until Hackett was eventually fired and was offered the interim job after defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero turned down the role.

In those two games under Rosburg, he had the Broncos playing much better and nearly defeated the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead. He defeated the Los Angeles Chargers, a playoff team, in the season finale. However, it appears that Rosburg was not part of the new coaching staff’s plan and they decided to move on.

I think this report is an indication that the Broncos have narrowed down their finalists and none of those candidates wanted Rosburg on their staff. Fans and some media had hoped he would be considered for the head coaching job (never seemed likely) or at least stick on as a special teams coordinator or as a consultant. However, that will not happen and we hopefully get some more competent coaches joining the Broncos coaching staff in the near future.
