Broncos to hire Jim Mora to run defense

The Denver Broncos are on the verge of hiring former Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks coach Jim Mora as their new defensive coordinator, according to the Denver Post.
Broncos coach John Fox is moving quickly to fill out his staff.
Per the report, Mora went to Denver today to talk with Fox.
Mora has previous stints as a defensive coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers and has also coached the secondary before.
Besides the hires announced today, which included retaining offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, the Broncos are also expected to add linebackers coach Richard Smith and special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers.
