‘Some big decisions’: Gus urges Seibold to consider Broncos future
Phil Gould believes it might be time for Anthony Seibold to step down from his Broncos post because clubs historically don’t turn things around without a change in coaching structure.
The Broncos have won just three games in 2020 and only once in 11 games since the season restart with the club in turmoil over a number of off-field incidents and their poor on-field performances.
“I couldn’t blame him if he did,” he told Channel 9s TODAY.

“It doesn’t mean his career is over, and it doesn’t mean he’s not a coach of the future. Maybe just now is not the time and place, given what’s happened over the last 15 months.
“I wouldn’t blame him if he walked away, put it that way, and I wouldn’t see it as a weakness, and I would see that there’s a future in the game for him somewhere down the track.”
Gould believes there is not much historical evidence that clubs can dig themselves out of the predicament the Broncos find themselves in without changing the coaching set-up.
“Rarely have you seen clubs resurrect themselves from this, particularly with the coaching staff,” Gould said.

Gould called on the Broncos to be honest and fess up to the mistakes that landed the club in its current state, before they can move forward.
“Well from where we all sit it looks like a mess, I’m not sure they’ve given up, and things are never as bad as they seem, but we’ve seen the warning signs over the last 15 months with this club, and I just feel as though they’ve been in denial,” Gould said.

“Whether it be recruitment, retention, the management of the salary cap, the development of players, coaching, leadership, culture, and everything is being played out before us this year, both on and off the field.
“The first thing they need to do is be honest about how they’ve got themselves in this situation, before they can even think of a solution to go forward.”
