The Denver Broncos are planning to fire head coach Vance Joseph at the conclusion of the 2018 regular season, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio.

Broncos general manager John Elway considered firing Joseph at the end of last season, but instead opted to keep him on for 2018.

Elways had pitched ownership on the idea of bringing back long-time Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan, but was instructed to conduct a head coaching search that didn’t include Shanahan, or continue with Joseph while giving him a better quarterback to work with.

Denver is currently 6-8.
