Newly appointed Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels has chosen to retain two of the assistant coaches who served under Mike Shanahan.
Former Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison will be retained and likely will man the role of the offensive line coach. Dennison has been solid throughout his tenure with Denver and was with coach Shanahan for 14 years. The offensive line has flourished under Dennison during his time with the Broncos.
Also being retained is long-time running backs coach Bobby Turner. Turner has been an instrumental part to Denver’s running attack over the years, churning out 1,000 yard rusher just about every season. This past year with the injury bug decimating the Denver running game, Turner took just about any back he had to work with and had them as prepared as they could have been to play.
I am excited for these 2 choices by the new head coach, specifically Turner. Turner has just been a staple with Denver over the years and was a must hire in my opinion. The combination of Turner and Dennison are proven to work well for the team, the major question I have now is what will happen to Jeremy Bates. It was also announced that wide receiver coach Jedd Fisch will not be rehired for the upcoming season, more to come on rumored candidates as I hear about them.
