Denver Broncos want to interview Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak

The Denver Broncos have quickly started looking for new head coach candidates after moving on from Vance Joseph.

First, the team asked the New England Patriots for permission to interview defensive coordinator Brian Flores for their head coach opening. Flores will be available to interview during New England’s playoff bye week.

Then the Broncos asked the Pittsburgh Steelers for permission to interview offensive line coach Mike Munchak, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Because Pittsburgh has been eliminated from playoff contention, Munchak is available to interview for Denver’s head coach opening right away.

Munchak, 58, has been coaching in the NFL since 1994. Munchak was a star offensive lineman during his playing days, earning nine Pro Bowl selections during his 12 seasons with the Houston Oilers.

After retiring from playing, Munchak joined the Oilers’ staff as an offensive assistant/quality control coach. He was later promoted to offensive line coach in 1997, a job he held with the Oilers/Tennessee Titans until 2010.

The Titans named Munchak their head coach in 2011 but he only lasted three seasons at that position, posting a 22-26 win-loss record.

Munchak has served as the Steelers’ offensive line coach since 2014.
