Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter pulled out a winter coat he wasn’t sure would still fit for his Tuesday interview in Denver for the Broncos' head-coaching position.
Koetter and Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison each interviewed for the post on Tuesday. Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams took himself out of consideration and offered Broncos executive John Elway a ringing endorsement of Koetter.
According to Jeff Legwold, Williams wrote: "Dirk Koetter is a GREAT find on your part. I have very high regard for him."
Denver knows Dennison well, as he played with Elway and served as an assistant there.
Terry Frei looks back at a column he did on Dennison a few years ago when Dennison was a Denver assistant.
Koetter would be a bigger loss for the Jaguars than Dennison would be for the Texans.
Dennison works for an offensive coach in Gary Kubiak who calls the plays, and Dennison has only been with the Texans for a year. Koetter is heading toward his fifth season working for Jack Del Rio, a defensive coach.
Another candidate for Denver, John Fox, has had trouble getting to his interview because of weather delays.
