Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels is deliberating over whom to hire as his next defensive coordinator following Mike Nolan's departure. Word is there are two candidates for the job: former Patriots defensive coordinator Dean Pees and Broncos LB coach Don Martindale. Whoever the choice is — we hear Pees, who coached with McDaniels in New England, is the front-runner to get the nod — will have a hard time replacing Nolan. He helped Denver improve dramatically as it transitioned from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense. The Broncos' "D" jumped from 29th to seventh in the league in 2009, and players developed a high level of respect for Nolan, who made a lateral move to the Dolphins. The Broncos are expected to stick with a 3-4 front, but there will likely be some changes made within the scheme. This will be the fifth different person to run the Denver "D" in five seasons.
