Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn was the first to interview for the Broncos head coaching vacancy, Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver reports.

Glenn would seem a longshot to break the Lions’ coaching drought. He just finished his first-ever season as a defensive coordinator and his Lions finished No. 31 in points allowed. The Lions gave up 38 points to the Broncos’ offense in an early December game.

But Glenn, 49, has earned a solid reputation first as 15-year defensive back from 1994-2008 and then as a five-year defensive backs coach for Sean Payton’s New Orleans Saints from 2016-20.

George Paton, the Broncos’ general manager, is aware of Glenn’s approval standing around the league and wants to find out for himself. Paton and five other members of his head coach search committee – Darren Mougey, Kelly Kleine, Rich Hurtado, Ray Jackson and Patrick Smyth interviewed Glenn on Thursday afternoon.
