Josh McDaniels' firing doesn't come as a huge surprise Monday after what has been a tumultuous season in Denver.

Once hailed as one of the best young minds in the NFL, McDaniels lost 17 out of his last 22 games in Denver after beginning his head coaching career with six straight wins.

It was what he did off the field that may have, in fact, been the last straw in Denver.

The Broncos were caught videotaping a walk-through session of the 49ers earlier this year in London, leading to the eventual firing of a team employee.

McDaniels was subsequently fined for failing to report the violation to the NFL.

In the end, his failure to follow the rules could play a factor in Denver's coaching search.

The Broncos could claim to have just cause to terminate the contract, saving them $6 million over the next two years.

With a little more cash in the bank, could Broncos' owner Pat Bowlen pursue a big name to take over at the top?

Here's a look at 10 candidates to become the next head coach of the Denver Broncos.
