The Denver Broncos’ coaching staff is taking shape with Vic Fangio at the helm. Will Fangio find a way to get Mike Munchak in-house?
The Denver Broncos have hired Vic Fangio as their next head coach, and now they are busy assembling the full coaching staff around him.
As a defensive coordinator and specialist on that side of the ball, hiring Fangio meant the Broncos would also have to be very calculated in their plan to fix the offensive side of the ball, where they need improvement in just about every area.
Those expected to return from the previous regime include running backs coach Curtis Modkins, wide receivers coach Zach Azzani, defensive line coach Bill Kollar, and special teams coordinator Tom McMahon.
The Broncos also intend to keep strength and conditioning coordinator Loren Landow and his staff.
There have been a number of departures from the staff already. Former head coach Vance Joseph has re-surfaced in Arizona with Kliff Kingsbury and the Cardinals as their defensive coordinator. It’s possible he will be joined by former defensive coordinator Joe Woods, who has also drawn interest from the Jaguars and Redskins.
Offensive line coach Sean Kugler worked with the interior linemen in Denver last year and will now be the offensive line coach of the Arizona Cardinals.
Chris Strausser coached the Broncos’ tackles this past year and is a candidate for a job opening with the Cleveland Browns.
Both Broncos defensive backs coaches — Marcus Robertson and Greg Williams — are also candidates for other jobs around the league.
The status of quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, tight ends coach Geep Chryst, and assistant quarterbacks coach Klint Kubiak is unknown at this point in time.
So who are the Broncos bringing in? What moves are they looking to make?
Let’s take a look at the latest coaching rumors surrounding Denver, starting with one of their head coaching candidates.
