Vegas predicts Shanahan or Joseph becomes Broncos' coach

As far as Vegas goes, the Broncos' coaching search is officially a two-man race.

Oddsmakers for gambling website have tabbed Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and Dolphins defensive boss Vance Joseph as the favorites to succeed Gary Kubiak.

Shanahan (+125) edged out Joseph (+180) for the top spot. Both are well above the other possibilities: Darrell Bevell (+1300), Joe DeCamillis (+1500), Sean McVay (+1750), Dave Toub (+2000), and Sean Payton (+2000).

The only candidates to secure interviews thus far, Shanahan will meet with John Elway and Co. over the weekend, during the Falcons' bye, while Joseph must wait until Miami's eliminated from the postseason.

Both coaches have ties to the Broncos' organization. Shanahan's father is Denver's former Super Bowl-winning head man, Mike Shanahan. Joseph, who was passed over for Kubiak in 2015, attended the University of Colorado, where he later coached.

Elway revealed Monday that he has three or four "young" candidates in mind to replace 55-year-old Kubiak, who resigned after two years on the job.

“There’s a lot of young guys out there that have a lot of potential and are very bright guys,” Elway said, per the Denver Post. “Hopefully we can get one of those.”
