Denver Broncos new Head Coach Sean Payton is in the process of assembling his coaching staff. Apparently, a Denver radio host believes that he’s taking to long filling out his staff.
Eric Goodman, a radio host in Denver, took to Twitter to criticize Payton for his handling of filling these vacancies. “Right now, he has 6 coaches on his staff, including himself & has 12 more to fill including every one on defense,” Goodman tweeted.
Goodman also said, “Please don’t sell me a pile a garbage he’s taking his time. This is embarrassing,” he said.
Payton found out about the tweet and took time to fire a shot of his own. “16 with 5 to go. We’ll fill you in when we’re ready,” the Broncos head coach tweeted.
Payton responded by saying he actually has 16 coaching vacancies filled on his staff and only has five remaining openings. That is much different than Goodman’s comment of only having six coaches, including Payton himself, on his staff.
The Broncos are currently interviewing defensive coordinator candidates. He has interviewed Rex Ryan, Vance Joseph, and Matt Patricia in recent days for that position and a decision appears to be coming soon.
