According to Ian Rapoport, the Broncos have notified the Steelers of their intention to speak with OL coach Mike Munchak, who’s currently a free agent.
Rapoport says that the Broncos and Munchak have been in talks about a potential deal after he impressed them during the interview process for their head coach job.
Reports had said that Munchak was a finalist for the Broncos’ job before they ultimately settled on Vic Fangio as their next head coach.
Adam Schefter previously mentioned that Munchak has both professional and personal ties to Denver and shares the same agent as Broncos executive VP John Elway. Beyond that, Munchak’s daughter and her family all live in Denver.
Munchak, 58, played 12 years in the NFL for the Houston Oilers. He was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, four-time first-team All-Pro, and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2011.
Munchak began his NFL coaching career in 1994 with the Oilers as their offensive assistant/quality control coach and eventually worked his way up to being the Titans head coach in 2011. After Tennessee fired following his third season, Munchak agreed to become the Steelers’ offensive line coach in 2014.
