DENVER (UPI) —
The Denver Broncos have fired coach Vance Joseph following a season-ending loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
A source told NFL Network
on Monday that the franchise was parting ways with the 46-year-old. The Chargers beat the Broncos 23-9 on Sunday at Mile High Stadium, handing Denver its fourth consecutive loss.
The Broncos began the season 2-0 before losing six of their next seven games. Denver won three straight to push its record to 6-6, before slumping down the stretch. The Broncos finished in third place in the AFC West.
Joseph posted an 11-21 mark in two seasons with the franchise. He served as the Miami Dolphins’ defensive coordinator for one season before being hired by the Broncos. He worked as a defensive back coach for the San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals before joining the Dolphins in 2016.
