Then he became head coach of the Broncos in 2017.

From running backs coach to the big chair in 11 months is quite a jump, and it's a move that comes with complications that go well beyond printing new business cards and moving office furniture.

The interim head coach, Gregg Williams, meanwhile, lost out on both the top job and his defensive coordinator job, being fired Wednesday, according to ESPN.

The hires mean that only the Jets, Dolphins and Bengals remain in the hunt for their next head coach.

He has mostly coached a 3-4 scheme but he is not very experienced as a defensive coordinator.

McCarthy is now reportedly focused on the New York Jets' job, telling other teams that it's the only job he'll consider. "You have a resume that you check off the list and everything?"

Chuck Pagano is quickly becoming a popular name on the rumor circuit for the vacant Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator position.

And if the Broncos can't eventually get back on track with Fangio in charge, Elway, having taken the road less traveled in the 2019 coaching cycle and in total control, should start to worry about his own job security.

Elway, who turns 59 this summer, and Fangio, who turns 61 in August, will make up one of the oldest coach-GM duos in the National Football League in 2019.

Gase was 23-26 in three seasons with Miami, including a playoff game in 2016, before being fired after this season.

Gase replaces Todd Bowles, who was sacked after he went 24-40 in four seasons.
