According to Denver 7's news Troy Renck, the Denver Broncos are set to interview Miami Dolphins Defensive Coordinator Vance Joseph for their Head Coaching vacancy on Tuesday.

Unlike with Kyle Shanahan and Dave Toub, Joseph will travel to Denver to visit with the Broncos decision makers. The Broncos traveled to Kansas City and Atlanta on Friday and Saturday to interview Toub and Shanahan. Those two were able to interview this week because the Chiefs and Falcons earned first-round byes, but could not travel to and from their teams since they are still preparing for the playoffs.

The Broncos are able to now interview Joseph after the Dolphins were defeated by the Pittsburgh Steelers today, and it wasn't pretty for the Joseph, who is the Defensive Coordinator for the Dolphins. Now he will have a chance to once again impress the Broncos decision makers for the second time.

As we know, Joseph met with the Broncos two offseasons ago and the Broncos wanted him to be their Defensive Coordinator, but the Bengals blocked this move. The Broncos then settled for Wade Phillips. There are even reports that if Kubiak turned down the job, the Broncos were prepared to offer Joseph the job. So it will be interesting to see if they offer him the job the second time around.

The Broncos will have some competition for Joseph's services, though. Renck states that the Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, and the San Fransisco 49ers are also interested in interviewing Joseph.

The Broncos do not have any other interview scheduled currently, so there's a chance that Dave Toub, Kyle Shanahan, or Vance Joseph are the only three. The Broncos will be able to hire Joseph as soon as possible while they would have to wait at least one more week to hire Toub and Shanahan. So I think it is safe to assume that the longer this drags out, the better it is for Toub and Shanahan to get the job.

Or you know, the Broncos could just offer Joseph the job on Tuesday and get on with it.
