Koetter to Interview

Posted Jan 7, 2011

On Friday, the Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway announced via Twitter that the team had permission to interview Dirk Koetter for the head coach vacancy.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- With their next head coach candidate, the Denver Broncos are taking a look at the man who directed the NFL's third-ranked rushing offense in 2010.

Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway on Friday announced via Twitter that the Broncos have been granted permission to interview  Jaguars Offensive Coordinator Dirk Koetter.

The Broncos will interview Giants Defensive Coordinator Perry Fewell and Interim Head Coach Eric Studesville on Sunday, and Elway also announced that he is seeking permission to interview Texans Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison.

Since Koetter took over as offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2007, they have finished in the top 10 in rushing three times.

In 2007, Koetter's first season in Jacksonville, the Jaguars offense ranked seventh in the NFL and set franchise records with 411 points, 50 touchdowns, 28 passing touchdowns and 5.6 yards per play.

The Jaguars were the first professional team to employ Koetter, but the coach has close to a decade of college head coaching experience. In six seasons as the head coach of the Arizona State football program, Koetter took his team to four bowl games while acting acting as offensive coordinator as well.

Under Koetter's tutelage, Andrew Walter broke John Elway's Pacific-10 Conference record for touchdown passes and became the school's all-time leading passer. The Sun Devils finished in the top-20 nationally in passing offense in five of Koetter's six seasons.

Before coming to ASU, Koetter held the position of head coach for Boise State University for three years. He won 26 games in three seasons, earned Big West Coach of the Year two times and led his team to two consecutive bowl wins.
