Joseph was one of the hottest coaching candidates in the League, and Elway was not playing games once the team's former coach, Gary Kubiak, announced two weeks ago that he was stepping down from that position due to health conditions.
Joseph played for the Colorado Buffaloes in college, and briefly for the Jets and Colts. He them moved into coaching, with stops at Colorado, Wyoming and Bowling Green. He was eventually hired by the 49ers in 2005 as a secondary assistant, then went to the Texans and Bengals before heading to South Beach this past season as the Dolphin's defensive coordinator.
