This looks like an Affirmative Action hire to me.
John Elway has managed a team that has had two head coaches take his team to the Super Bowl in the last three years. He knows how to find and hire good coaches. Vance Joseph is one of the hottest coaching candidates this offseason, and if the Broncos hadn't hired him, another team would have. But Elway, a man who know far more about football coaching than you or I, never let Joseph leave Denver to go to another interview. That should be more than enough to demonstrate that the accusation that this is an "Affirmative Action hire" is absurd.
Congratulations to Vance Joseph and to the Broncos.

Sorry, guys, I still stand by my Affirmative Action claim.
Vance Joseph has coached in the NFL for 12 years.
One year ago he was a Defensive Backs coach.
I agree that the Dolphin defense was limited by injuries and free agency.
However, Miami gave up 31-35-30 points in their last three games.
Six weeks ago, the Ravens scored 38 against Joseph, which was the most points the Ravens scored all season.
Is this the new criteria for a head coach?
The Broncos hired Joseph because he would have been brilliant except for the injuries and free agency?
