Wisely, the Denver Broncos are planning to talk to some defensive coaches in their search to find Josh McDaniels' replacement.

New Denver leader John Elway told the Denver Post he will ask permission to talk to Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and New Orleans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Williams has head-coaching experience. Fewell is also garnering interest from San Francisco, Cleveland and Carolina.

Denver will also talk to Atlanta offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey and Denver interim coach Eric Studesville. There has been talk that Mularkey could be the leading candidate because of his ability to work with a young quarterback such as Tim Tebow.

But Denver does have some major shoring up to do on defense. It allowed a league-high 471 points this season. Talking to coaches like Fewell and Williams is a sign Denver is prepared to do its due diligence in this process.

Also, Elway told the Denver Post he didn’t get the chance to talk to Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh about the job while Elway served as an honorary Stanford captain in the team’s Orange Bowl win Monday. Still, if Elway wants to talk to Harbaugh, I’m sure he’ll get the opportunity.

AFC West news and notes

January, 22, 2009

Posted by's Bill Williamson

LaDainian Tomlinson put his written words where his body ink is. Once again, the future Hall of Fame running back pledged his loyalty to the Chargers.

With rumors rampant that he could be trade bait, it is no surprise Tomlinson wrote that he wants to be back in San Diego. This is the same guy who has the Chargers' lightning bolt emblem tattooed on his calf.

Tomlinson has always figured he'd be a Charger for life, and Wednesday's statement doesn't change that belief.

There was coaching news in the AFC West Wednesday, but not the news we've all been waiting for.

Yes, Oakland still hasn't announced if Tom Cable will be the permanent head coach or if it will go in another direction. And Kansas City still hasn't announced whether Herm Edwards will be kept or released.

Still, there was plenty of assistant coach movement.

San Diego added longtime NFL defensive back Cris Dishman to the coaching staff as assistant secondary coach. He was with the Chargers part of last season as part of the NFL's Minority Coaching Fellowship program.

The team also added Greg Williams as the assistant linebackers coach.

Denver also added three coaches, including officially announcing the hiring of former Oakland linebackers coach Don Martindale for the same role with the Broncos. The team also hired Ben McDaniels as an assistant. He is the 28-year-old brother of new Denver coach Josh McDaniels. It is Ben McDaniels' first NFL coaching job. He was coaching the quarterbacks at a Canton, Ohio, high school. The other coach Denver hired was Jay Rodgers, who was last at Iowa State.

Also, the Oakland Tribune wonders if a move by Stanford assistant Chris Dalman is another sign that Cable will be named the head coach.
