ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Air Force coach Troy Calhoun is reiterating his commitment to the academy amid speculation he'd be a prime candidate to take over the Denver Broncos' head coaching job.
Calhoun issued a statement Tuesday saying he is looking forward to coaching the Falcons in 2011 "and beyond." Air Force athletic director Hans Mueh said in a statement that the academy is happy that Calhoun is continuing his commitment to the academy.
Calhoun, whose name also was brought up in the University of Colorado's recent coaching search, worked on both offense and defense with the Broncos during Mike Shanahan's tenure. Shanahan's successor, Josh McDaniels, was fired Monday.
