Mora leaves Denver without contract

After a daylong interview with the Denver Broncos, Jim Mora left without a deal to become the team's defensive coordinator.

Mora arrived at the team's Dove Valley headquarters at 8:30 a.m. to meet with head coach John Fox and staff, and was still there into the early evening, according to the Denver Post.

Mora’s departure from Denver without a contract is good news for the Eagles, of course, but it again raises the question of whether he really wants to get back into NFL coaching, with school-age children, and his family settled in Seattle.

The Post had reported Monday night that Mora was likely to join Fox's staff.


Another name being bandied about as a potential candidate is Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine Jr., who grew up in Doylestown, where his father was the legendary coach at Central Bucks West.

Pettine told the Wall Street Journal that he has no plans to leave the Jets.

"Have heard the rumor too," Pettine wrote in an email. "No truth to it."

Pettine is under contract for another year with the Jets, who are set to play in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday against Pittsburgh.
