Broncos interest in Harbaugh cools
ENGLEWOOD — The Denver Broncos are no longer aggressively pursuing Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh for their vacant head coaching position.
John Elway, the Broncos’ new football czar, said on his weekly radio show on 87.7 The Ticket in Denver today that he believes Harbaugh wants to stay at Stanford, where star quarterback Andrew Luck will return next season rather than turn pro.
Elway said he believes Harbaugh’s alma mater, Michigan, might also be back in the picture after Harbaugh listened to pitches from the San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins this week.
Elway also said he’s seeking permission from the Houston Texans to interview offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, a longtime Broncos assistant, and is considering calling former Giants coach Jim Fassel.
