Sean McVay's defensive coaching staff is taking shape, though the paperwork isn't finalized on these guys just yet. Wade Phillips has agreed to be the defensive coordinator. Joe Barry, fired after two years as Redskins defensive coordinator, will come in as assistant head coach and linebackers coach, a position group he has spent 16 years coaching. Bill Johnson, one of five Saints assistants let go recently, will coach the defensive line. Mike Waufle previously held that job for the Rams, but was hired by the Bills. Something to keep in mind about assembling a staff: Teams are only required to allow assistants to interview for and take head-coaching jobs, not anything else. So, for example: A team can block an offensive line coach from being poached to become offensive coordinator, even though it is a promotion. That's why it's so hard for new head coaches to assemble their first staff.
The Broncos have promoted Joe Woods to defensive coordinator, sources confirmed to ESPN. He replaces Wade Phillips.
No experience necessary for new hires
Of the five head coaches hired this year, only Doug Marrone has previous experience, and he has only two years, at that. The 49ers have shown interest in two candidates with previous experience: Josh McDaniels and Tom Cable.
