The Denver Broncos interviewed former Stanford coach David Shaw on Wednesday about their head coaching vacancy, ESPN reported.

Shaw, 50, resigned from Stanford on Nov. 27 after 12 seasons. The winningest coach in Cardinal history compiled a 96-54 record after succeeding Jim Harbaugh before the 2011 season, including a 3-9 mark in 2022.

The Broncos fired Nathaniel Hackett on Dec. 26 after a 4-11 record in his first season on the job. Denver finished with a 5-12 record.

Shaw coached in the NFL before joining the Stanford staff as an assistant in 2007, working as an assistant coach for the Philadelphia Eagles (1997), then-Oakland Raiders (1998-2001) and Baltimore Ravens (2002-05).

Other names linked to the Broncos’ coaching search include former New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris. Broncos defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero is also considered a candidate.
