John Elway and the Denver Broncos have started 2018 with a bang.

They didn’t make the move most still think they should have made (fire Vance Joseph), but they are cleaning out the assistant coaches at a feverish pace. Both offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave and defensive coordinator Joe Woods are safe, but that’s about it at this point.

This will track and update anyone the organization fires, interviews, hires, rumors and decides to keep (defensive line coach Bill Kollar). If you see a move we haven’t added, please mention it in the comments.
