Denver hires search firm, interviewing Fox Monday

Despite being "let go" by the Carolina Panthers about a week ago, John Fox is a pretty hot name for openings around the NFL. And he'll be interviewing for one of those openings -- with the Denver Broncos -- on Monday.

Charley Casserly of CBS Sports reported on The NFL Today that Fox is among a number of candidates for the Broncos' job and that they've retained a search firm in order to help them narrow the list.

"First of all, they're going to take their time with the search," Casserly said. "Second thing is they've hired the executive search firm, Russell-Reynolds, to consult with John Elway and his staff throughout the process of hiring a coach."

That process involves cutting down the list of candidates which, according to Casserly, includes Eric Studesville (their current interim coach), Perry Fewell (Giants DC), Dirk Koetter (Jacksonville OC), Rick Dennison (Houston OC), Gregg Williams (New Orleans DC), Fox and Mike Mularkey.

Two interesting points about Mularkey and Fox -- Casserly reported that although Mularkey, who cancelled an earlier interview with the Broncos, is still in the mix because "both sides decided they will talk at a later time."



On Fox, Casserly reported that "he'll only get consideration for [the Broncos'] job if he's willing to take less money" than he got with the Panthers in 2010.

That's no huge surprise considering that Fox was, after all, let go. It's not often that you get a promotion simply for becoming unemployed.

Either way, though, it appears the Broncos are seeking a coach who's fine with letting Elway run the show from a personnel standpoint.

BobbyZ1958, that was CLASSIC!!!
Having been in global manufacturing for the better part of 20 years I can totally relate to what you just said.
I don't think Fox had a salary of $12.66 an hour in mind when he agreed to take a pay cut from his Carolina salary though.

The Broncos will find out that Mohammed, Rashish, Rambabu, and Srinivas all know everything about selecting a coach and cut do it for half the price !!!

What the heck does Denver need a search firm for lol. What a waste of money. They need a search fimr to find and tell them who can be a good NFL coach to hire. Geez Elway you cannot do that lol.
