In addition to interviewing outside candidates for their open general manager position, the Denver Broncos will consider at least one in-house candidate.
Denver will interview director of college scouting Brian Stark, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis. Stark is “well-respected in NFL personnel committee” and the Broncos view him as a “rising football exec,” Klis tweeted on Tuesday evening.
Before joining Denver’s staff, Stark was an offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Yale University and an offense program coordinator at the University of Washington before that.
The Broncos also requested permission to interview New Orleans Saints vice president, assistant general manager of pro personnel Terry Fontenot, New England Patriots assistant director of player personnel Dave Ziegler and Minnesota Vikings vice president of player personnel/assistant general manager George Paton.
Denver has already received permission to interview Chicago Bears assistant director of player personnel Champ Kelly.
Denver is seeking a new GM after John Elway stepped down from that role Monday. Elway will remain the president of football operations.
