Within minutes of news breaking that John Elway had fired Vance Joseph, the Denver Broncos reached out to the New England Patriots for permission to interview their defensive coordinator Brian Flores.

Flores is a first year defensive coordinator who has spent his entire career with the Patriots as both a special teams and defensive assistant.

The Patriots finished the season ranked seventh in points given up, but 21st in total yards. They also ranked 22nd in defensive DVOA through the regular season.
