As the Denver Broncos continue their search for a new head coach, they could do worse than find the next John Harbaugh.
A relatively obscure, longtime assistant when he was hired to replace Brian Billick as head coach a year ago, Harbaugh just transformed the 5-11 Baltimore Ravens team he inherited into an AFC championship game qualifier.
Any advice Harbaugh would give the Broncos, who 12 days ago fired Mike Shanahan, as they take their turn replacing a strong coach?
"Hire Leslie Frazier," Harbaugh said in the locker room after his Ravens defeated the Tennessee Titans 13-10 in a second-round AFC playoff game. "That's my advice."
Frazier, now the Minnesota Vikings' defensive coordinator, is receiving serious consideration from the Broncos' five-man search committee, according to an NFL source.
So is New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who met with Broncos chief operating officer Joe Ellis for nearly six hours Thursday night in Massachusetts, according to another NFL source.
The Broncos' search committee met throughout the day Saturday, and the source said the committee was to take a step back today and re-evaluate the next step in the search.
