Broncos introduce Studesville as interim coach

Eric Studesville takes over as Denver's interim coach (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

The Broncos held a news conference this afternoon to welcome interim coach Eric Studesville – the running backs coach under Josh McDaniels – and the biggest mistake the Denver management admitted was that for the past two years the organization burdened McDaniels with too much responsibility.

Though the Broncos allowed former coach Mike Shanahan and McDaniels to have plenty of say in player personnel decisions, chief operating officer Joe Ellis said he didn’t envision the next coaching getting that much power.

“We probably burdened Josh with too much responsibility,” Ellis said.

Even with all that had gone wrong in McDaniels’ tenure – the video-taping incident, the ghastly personnel decisions, the terrible record – owner Pat Bowlen wasn’t sure if the team should let go of McDaniels.

While general manager Brian Xanders is still with the team, there’s the thought Broncos legend John Elway – who’s already a business consultant with the organization – might be interested in helping out on the football side of things.

“He’s expressed an interest,” Ellis said.

As for Studesville, he said he was nervous to take the interim job, and he didn’t accept right away. He needed a little time to think about it, because, in his words, he didn’t want to take the decision lightly.

“Opportunities like this don’t come along every day,” he said.

As for Tim Tebow – who I wrote about earlier today – Studesville said he will continue to evaluate the rookie QB but that, for now, Kyle Orton will remain the team’s quarterback.

season was toast and so was the future if we kept Mcdaniels in charge.there is plenty of blame to go around.Mcdaniels was given way to much control and the next one to go needs to be xanders.Bring in elway and kubiak after he gets fired in Houston It just make sense to me bringing in that combo if possible,also give tebow his shot. We must see what we have with him rather then give up on him before he gets His chance.Thats only fair to him..GO BRONCOS! Brighter days are ahead!Can they really get any worse?

I just hope they can end the season on a positive note. Hope all the best for Studs. The glaring problem right now (besides personnel) is the fact that the Broncs are still eating Shanny's contract and probably McD's, too. They will have in essence 3 head coaches on the payroll next year. Yikes.

McDaniels coaches like he's coaching high school.  He freaks out after a first quarter score and thinks he's won the Super Bowl after a regular season win.  STOOOOGE!!!

Thank god they got rid of that clown!  Now at least they won't have him trading their starters for first round picks that he uses on third round picks.  Tebow has little accuracy and no arm.  I could care less about the rest of the package you can't play QB without some of the two.  Move him to tight end or something.  There always have been question marks with Cutler, but he's better then Orton.  The only smart decisions he's made were to get rid of Marshall, because he's a punk, and drafting Moreno.

This makes no sense.  Seems Josh gets paid either way.  And this isn't the long term solution.  I mean interim doesn't become permanent.  If Josh and his whole staff were taking a hike and, just for fun (even with the staff staying) you let Elway or (better) Dave Logan run the rest of season interim, then there's some interest.   It says, Josh was not the answer and we're letting the fams know while we finish the season (we're eliminated) and consider our future.  Eric Studesville has how much chance to become the permanent deal?  Why take the job?   Why do this now, this way?

he looked sharp in preseason??????????  i watched him play in preseason and other than a few plays while the other teams 4th string was playing trying not to be cut he was crap. all 6 or 7 of his special coaches he needed were counting their money hoping he could complete a pass without them being 2 feet away giving instructions while the rest of the team watched this special treatment.

"This is a league where at least 75 percent of the coaches and personnel people are not Tebow-ites.”

Whomever Bowlen turns to next as coach is likely to look at Tebow and say, “Thanks, but no thanks.” McDaniels’ unwillingness to turn to Tebow as this season unraveled will probably be viewed as an indictment on the first-round draft pick.

The bottom line is that Tebow is an acquired taste who needs a coach who believes in him and is willing to work on his throwing motion until it has completely changed. Even then, there are significant questions about Tebow’s accuracy.

Outside of University of Florida coach Urban Meyer, who looks lost these days without Tebow (and , for that matter), few coaches are invested in Tebow. Of course, some of Tebow’s devout followers will take this as a personal and spiritual affront. Save it, please. This is not about religion, this is about football."

i think tebow is as good as gone. the only two teams other than the broncos were the pats (kraft is big buddies with the florida A.D. and urbie meyer and buffalo. buffalo is waiting for jake locker.  hes more than likely on his way out
