Jim Mora Jr. Close to Being Denver Broncos Defensive Coordinator


Despite the uncertainty of whether or not the Broncos would be making a move to the 4-3 defense, it seems that the hiring of John Fox and one of this pending coaching moves are violently shoving the Broncos in that direction.

The Denver Post is reporting that Jim Mora Jr., formerly the head coach of Seattle and Atlanta, is "close" to becoming the Denver Broncos' new defensive coordinator. The Broncos reportedly offered former Philadelphia defensive coordinator Sean McDermott a deal to be their defensive boss, and McDermott passed in favor of the Carolina Panthers.

Mora was the first name to surface for the Broncos' defensive coordinator position per NFL Network's Jason La Canfora. Mora never worked with Fox in Carolina, but he coached against him for his three years as head man of the Falcons.

Mora's roots are with the defensive secondary, and he's been a secondary coach for San Diego, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Seattle. He's been coaching in the NFL since 1985, yet is still only 49 years old. 

After being fired by the Seahawks following the 2009 season, Mora joined the staff at NFL Network, and served as an analyst for them while also doing work with FOX Sports as a color commentator with the crew of Dick Stockton and Charles Davis.

A deal has not yet been finalized, but we will update the situation as it develops. Right now, it appears as though Mora will be the next leader of the Broncos' defense, working under new head coach John Fox.
