Broncos head coach candidate: Luke Getsy interviews in hopes of making rare jump from coach to head coach

Apart from college coaches who have made the leap to NFL team management, Cincinnati’s Zach Taylor is the only current coach to have been hired despite having no coordinator or game experience.

The move worked for the Bengals, who won the AFC North and hosted Las Vegas in Saturday’s playoff round.

Is Luke Getsy ready for the same rise?

The first step for Ghetsy, the 37-year-old Green Bay Packers quarterback coach, was to interview for the Broncos head coach on Friday.

Ghetsy, the second choice for a meeting with Broncos general manager George Paton and his team chiefs committee, ended the meeting around 5:15 p.m. Friday, according to the club.

On Saturday morning, the Broncos team will interview Green Bay offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and then fly back to Denver to await this weekend’s playoff games. On Thursday, they met with Detroit defense coordinator Aaron Glenn.

Eight candidates are on teams playing in the wild-card round and were not scheduled to be interviewed: Brian Callahan (Cincinnati) and Jarod Mayo (New England) on Saturday, Dan Quinn/Kellen Moore (Dallas), Jonathan Gannon (Philadelphia) and Eric Biniemi (Kansas City) on Sunday and Kevin O’Connell (LA Rams) on Monday.

It is believed that Paton prefers to give all interviews in person.

With the 13-4 Packers only having a first-round NFC farewell, Getsy and Hackett could face interested teams. On Friday, Hackett was interviewed by Jacksonville and will also face Chicago on Saturday.

Packers coach Matt Lafleur told reporters Wednesday that Ghetsy has done an “outstanding job.”
