Latest on the Offensive Coordinator search
When it was reported that the Broncos would be letting Gary Kubiak seek other opportunities around the league, the first name that popped up in the offensive coordinator search was San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello.
Scangarello is 46 years old but didn’t have a position coach job in the NFL until two years ago when he came aboard Kyle Shanahan’s staff in San Francisco as his quarterbacks coach.
In addition to the work he’s done with Jimmy Garoppolo, perhaps the most impressive work that’s been done in San Francisco is the development of young CJ Beathard in 2017 and BJ Mullens in 2018.
Between preseason and regular season play, the Broncos have been torched plenty by those two quarterbacks.
The only issue with hiring Scangarello as offensive coordinator is the 49ers apparently don’t want to see it happen. They reportedly blocked the Broncos’ interview request.
The Broncos reportedly won’t relent.
According to Mike Klis, the Broncos are going to be persistent with their attempt to interview Scangarello, who is the team’s primary candidate for the OC position.
If not Scangarello, the Broncos would have to look into other options, but what seems clear is their desire to hire someone with an expertise in quarterback development and someone willing to establish a creative offensive plan.
