Adam Schefter says the Broncos were "highly impressed" with Kyle Shanahan after his interview

Adam Schefter dropped some interesting nuggets about the Denver Broncos Head Coaching search.

A few moments ago, ESPN's Adam Schefter joined D-Mac and Big Al on 104.3 The Fan and had some interesting notes on the Denver Broncos Head Coaching search.

As we know, there are plenty of reports/rumors out there pointing at Miami Dolphins Defensive Coordinator Vance Joseph being the favorite for the Broncos job, but Adam Schefter says he isn't hearing the same and isn't that camp.

Schefter then stated that he "knows for a fact" and emphasized "for a fact" that the Broncos decision-makers came away highly impressed with Atlanta Falcons Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan after his interview this past Saturday. Schefter didn't state that Kyle was the front runner, but seemed to throw some water on the Vance Joseph fire, and spark the Kyle Shanahan talk.

ESPN's Jeff Legwold was a bit more direct when he told KOA's Andy Lindahl that Kyle Shanahan is the top candidate AND the current leading candidate for the Denver Broncos Head Coaching job.

These are the first reports about Kyle Shanahan actually being the front-runner for the job, and it is coming from two of the best when it comes to covering the Broncos.

Now, the Broncos do have Vance Joseph coming in for an official interview tomorrow and everything could change after that too, so we shall see.

If you are like me and want to see Kyle Shanahan being the next Denver Broncos Head Coach, you should be at least a little excited about Schefter's and Legwold's reports.
