ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Pat Bowlen's search for Mike Shanahan's successor begins Saturday with a trip to the east coast.

Bowlen and chief operating officer Joe Ellis will meet in New York with Steve Spagnuolo, who has been the Giants' defensive coordinator the past two seasons.

The 49-year-old was the architect of the pass rush that stymied Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in last year's Super Bowl, and has helped the Giants earn the top seed in the playoffs this season.

Then it's on to Boston, where the Broncos' brass will interview Patriots assistant Josh McDaniels. The 32-year-old rising star worked his way up from graduate assistant to offensive coordinator under Bill Belichick.

Tampa Bay assistant coach Raheem Morris, also 32, is the first candidate who will travel to Denver for his shot at the job. He'll interview at team headquarters on Wednesday.
