The Denver Broncos have made the move to hire San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello to be the next offensive coordinator.
The coordinators for the Denver Broncos are now set. Head coach and the three men responsible to leading the team has been completed. According to Adam Schefter, the Broncos have officially hired former San Francisco 49ers quarterback coach Rich Scangarello. He will be doing all of the offensive playcalling for the Denver Broncos in 2019.
This completes the Denver Broncos coordinators. Ed Donatell will join Vic Fangio in running the defense and Tom McMahon will remain with the team as the special teams coordinator.
Scangarello will be leading the entire offense for the first time in his career. He has spent many years learning under Kyle Shanahan during his time with the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers.
Now Scangarello’s biggest test will be to fix an offense that ranked 24th in points scored. While the yardage amounts were solid, Broncos Country is hoping that he will be able to produce for them in a big way with a bigger role.
My optimism for him stems from the fact that he has learned under Kyle Shanahan, who helped lead the Atlanta Falcons to a Super Bowl as an offensive coordinator himself. The offense ran by Shanahan was just mind blowing.
Hopefully the same can be said for Rich Scangarello. Denver has really struggled on offense the last few seasons. And with the quarterback carousel on the fourth different quarterback since Peyton Manning’s retirement in 2016, Denver truly needs an offense that can do some damage.
With the coordinators set, Denver can now focus on free agency and the draft. Is it possible for the Broncos to make a splash this year? Broncos County is hoping that something happens that will right the ship that has gone astray for the past few seasons.
