Found January 01, 2013 on BroncoTalk:
The coaching carousel has been going around since Monday, but the Broncos aren’t about to help another team in the AFC West fill any vacant positions.  On Tuesday, the Broncos blocked San Diego from talking to Denver’s Matt Russell. Teams are not allowed to interview coaches employed elsewhere in the NFL during the season without first gaining consent from the team holding the rights to the coach being inquired of.  The Chargers fired their general manager, A.J. Smith, on Monday and currently seeking his replacement. San Deigo asked the Broncos for permission to interview Matt Russell, Denver’s director of player personnel, to be their next G.M.  According to U-T San Diego columnist Kevin Acee, the Broncos denied to Chargers’ request, ending their pursuit of Russell, at least until the season comes to an end for Denver. Matt Russell’s name is a hot one out there, but it’ll be hard to pry him because he’s got Colorado roots and already has GM-like duties. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer...
