Fewell & Denver search

It's looking like New York Giants defensive chief Perry Fewell, the former Bills coordinator and interim head coach, is likely to remain entrenched in New York. Fewell has interviewed for three head coaching jobs - in Carolina, Denver and Cleveland. However, Carolina hired San Diego defensive chief Ron Rivera. That probably was Fewell's best shot this offseason at a head job. Denver and Cleveland remain on the hunt for a head coach. But Cleveland's search is being led by team president Mike Holmgren. Given Holmgren's offensive background, he's expected to hire an offensive coach. Denver's search is being led by John Elway. He may lean toward an offensive coach, too. Denver is scheduled to interview fired Carolina coach John Fox, a defensive coach. Elway has interviewed the offensive coordinators of the Texans (Rick Dennison) and the Jaguars (Dirk Koetter). Ex-Bills head coach Gregg Williams canceled an interview with the Broncos, deciding he did not want to leave New Orleans and giving Koetter a strong vote of confidence. Williams and Koetter previously worked together on the staff of Jack Del Rio in Jacksonville.

Below is a link to an interesting story in the Denver Post on how the Broncos are taking a very Madison Avenue approach, if you will, to their interview process in terms of identifying a candidate who projects the proper public image.
