    I'd like to see Dennison stay. Would this make him a first time HC if this happens?

    I want him to stay too. Hopefully Kubiak will turn over a lot more of the play-calling to Dennison next season. The least amount on Kubiaks plate the better chance of winning, IMO. Lock Kubiak in the offense's meeting room for the season.

    I'd like to see him stay as well not because he did such a great job - he did an adequate job first year in - But because his leaving would mean the 3rd OC for this offense in three seasons.

    I think he did a great job with the running game although having Foster and Ward to tote the rock might make TB look smart.

    The passing game looked to have taken a step back from a production standpoint although the numbers were close enough to those put up the year before with lil shanny.

    I think Kubiak would be the OC. He is in all but name anyway.

    Another reason for Dennison to stay is hopefully keeping Kubiak doing his head coaching chores, not being an OC and HC. If we get a new OC, you just KNOW Kubiak will be calling the plays.

    Looks like there would have been a real opportunity for Kubiak to be the Broncos next HC had McNair fired him ?

    Its his system and he does have the final call but he's far from doing the things required of an OC.

    I think there's no way in hell the Texans deny permission knowing the ties there but as has been mentioned, I'd sure hate to see him go and have the 3rd OC in 3 years. Not a picture of stability IMO.

    I liked Elway a lot more when he was rumored to want Kubiak as his HC.

    With an experienced assistant, he may just take over the mantle.

    Worse part if Dennison leaves is that most likely we will be dumb and hire from within which means Knapp would be the OC.

    If this occurs, there will be too much flux seen without a HC change for ONE season.:gun:

    I've been curious as to what Dennison's true level of involvement was this past season (as in what the breakdown between plays called by Kubiak and plays called by Dennison looked like). Is Dennison just a placeholder or does he function as a legit OC with the typical responsibilities of an OC? Either way, yet another change at OC would probably be bad for the team. If for some reason he does leave, I can only hope that another big name, who likes to run the ball, can be brought in to relieve Kubiak of certain responsibilities. Nothing was more confusing about last season than Kubiak's insistence on abandoning the run when he had the league's leading rusher in the backfield.

    A new OC and DC is a lot, I agree.

    The OC is almost meaningless at this point. Everything offensive runs through Kubiak. He may give up initial play call to an OC like Shanahan did with him but he is who is in Schaub's earhole. Frankly I don't have a problem with that.

    I thought permission was immaterial when interviewing for a raise in position?

    Was this request for permission merely an unnecessary formality?

    If a team wants to interview an assistant coach who is still under contract with another team for its head coaching position, the current team is required to give permission for the interview as long as it happens between the end of the team's season and March 1. After March 1, teams can still ask, but the current team is not obligated to give permission.
