With Josh McDaniels gone, who's gonna end up coaching the Denver Broncos? Great question, actually. One name floated prominently the last 24 hours has been Troy Calhoun, who was an assistant coach under Mike Shanahan, and is currently the head coach of the Air Force Academy.

But you can already scratch him off the list -- Calhoun released a statement Tuesday indicating his happiness with the the Academy and his lack of interest in the Broncos gig.

"The Air Force Academy has tremendous General officers and staff members who are remarkably dedicated to the development of our cadets. It’s inspiring that an 18 year old kid makes a commitment to embed the necessary character traits to grow into a fine young man or woman who honorably serves for at least five years," Calhoun said. "Our coaching staff and our families are proud to be a part of the daily lives of our nation’s future officers. We certainly look forward to seeing our seniors graduate in May along with coaching the Falcons in 2011 and beyond."

Okay, so it's not like renting a billboard that says "I'm not taking my talents to Mile High" or anything, but it's a pretty strong commitment to his current gig without actually mentioning that he's been approached about the Broncos job. Which he clearly has -- we can all agree that's true, right?

So, the Broncos "coaching search" is off on the right foot already! But that's no surprise, given the mess that we already knew they had on their hands when they initially canned McDaniels.

Here's what the team should do: hire John Elway in a "Football Business Czar" type of role, have him approach a "football guy" (you know, the type of person who's really good at evaluating talent, but doesn't want to coach and/or see the light of press conferences when possible?) and bring him on, and then let the two of those guys go after a coach for the Broncos.

While it's true that the team needs an identity change and they need it quick, the inability of Denver's front office to recognize the need for a rebuilding effort and some organizational structure is potentially more damaging than any horrible trade McDaniels ever made.

Good for you sir! Nice to see some loyalty in the face of a potential huge payday. Unlike Bdzelik who ran at the first sign of a way out of USAFA, you are sticking around to make a difference in future leaders' lives.

Thank you!
