The Broncos have so much time until they have to decide on a head coach that we’re probably going to hear a lot of crazy names thrown around as possible candidates.

Jim Fassel is still not one we would have expected to hear.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post throws out Fassel’s name Tuesday, citing some experience in Denver and the fact owner Pat Bowlen may be hesitant to hire another first time coach. Fassel, the former Giants head coach, is coming off a UFL title.

It’s unclear if this trial balloon was just a wild guess, based on some information within the organization, or a favor to Fassel.

Whatever the reason, Fassel is not a name that is going to get an angry fanbase on the team’s side.
