Report: Denver keeps Studesville

The Broncos have rewarded Eric Studesville for undertaking a difficult situation at the end of the 2010 season by bringing him back for the 2011 season.

The Denver Post is reporting that Studesville will be the running backs coach on John Fox’s staff. The two were assistants together with the New York Giants years ago. Studesville was the running backs coach under Josh McDaniels before McDaniels was fired in December with four games remaining in the season. Studesville became Denver’s interim coach and the Broncos had a 1-3 record under him.

Studesville impressed Denver’s brass with the way he handled the team after McDaniels was fired. Studesville was one of the five candidates interviewed for the head-coaching job before Fox was hired Thursday.

Meanwhile, the Broncos are looking at former Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott as a potential candidate for the same job. In a radio interview, Fox further explains what he’s looking for in his coaching staff among other topics.
