Texans Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison Early Frontrunner For Broncos Job

The Broncos, looking for familiarity, may go back to one of their own when they sign their new head coach.

Both Adam Schefter and Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network are reporting that Dennison is the early favorite to take over as the new head coach of the franchise, after Josh McDaniels was unceremoniously dismissed in the middle of the season.

While this wouldn’t be the end of the world for the Texans, who have gotten used to replacing offensive coordinators under Gary Kubiak’s watch, Dennison oversaw a massive improvement in the Texans running game last year. Arian Foster’s talent played a big part in the resurgence of the run game, but even Derrick Ward was picking up yards in chunks behind Dennison’s offensive line. Additionally, it would give them one more Denver coach to battlefight over skill position coaches with on the open market. The Texans still have to find a new linebackers coach and a new defensive backs coach.
