The Denver Post is reporting that the two sides are close to an agreement on Jim Mora Jr. becoming the newest defensive coordinator in Denver. This would fill the largest hole in John Fox’s coaching team shortly after announcing the first 8 filled positions on his staff.
Mora Jr. flew to Denver Monday evening to meet the team and discuss the position. It is expected that he will not leave the city until a deal is done. Mora is a valued commodity right now after the hiring of Sean McDermott by the Panthers yesterday afternoon. The Eagles are reported to be “very interested” in interviewing Mora Jr. for their DC position left vacant by the firing of McDermott. If the Broncos do lock up Jim this morning it could be seen as a win for the organization.
If the deal were to fall through at this point the Broncos could still look at hiring Green Bay defensive line coach Mike Trgovac, however they would need to wait until the Packers playoff run is complete. If the team can get this deal in place the Broncos would have two defensive specialists on staff in Fox and Mora along with head coaching experience at the two positions.
