Mike Shanahan revealed he was close to returning to the Denver Broncos before the 2018 season.
The Broncos ended up giving Vance Joseph one more season as head coach.
"I was close, I was close,'' Shanahan said. "One thing that has to happen is you all have to be on the same page. One thing you've got to make sure of when you are a head football coach that the owner, the GM, the quarterback are all on the same page. And if it doesn't happen the chances of you winning the Super Bowl aren't very good. ... I had a great conversation with John as everybody knows, it didn't work out, sometimes it works out for the right reasons.''
