Troy Calhoun of Air Force Rejected the Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos: The coaching search to replace Josh McDaniels is off to a rocky start. The most popular name in the 12 hours after McDaniels was canned was Air Force coach Troy Calhoun. Today, Jay Glazer made it sound like Calhoun was a heavy favorite. And then Calhoun released a statement saying he was pulling his name out of the running for the Broncos’ job before it even got to the interview stage. Odd. Why not at least talk to them? Calhoun was a Broncos assistant and Texans assistant, so he has NFL experience. We’ll just toss out names for the sake of tossing out names: Leslie Frazier, the current Vikings interim coach (interviewed for the gig in 2009); Marty Mornhinweg, the Eagles offensive coordinator; Mike Mularkey, the Falcons offensive coordinator; and it won’t happen, but you have to imagine the Broncos will at least put in a call to Oregon’s Chip Kelly and Stanford’s Jim Harbaugh. They’d be silly not to.

Because you want to see it first!
