Broncos | Will be committed to running the football

New Denver Broncos head coach John Fox has retained five of the team's former assistant coaches on offense, reports Jeff Legwold, of The Denver Post. Clancy Barone will coach tight ends, Eric Studesville will coach running backs, Adam Gase will handle quarterbacks, Brian Callahan will be an offensive assistant breaking down the team's opponents. Mike McCoy, who has a history with Fox, is remaining as the offensive coordinator. Under Fox, the team will have a commitment to the running game, especially in short-yardage situations. Last year, the Broncos had 18 third-and-1 situations and passes on six of them, converting just one. In seven third-and-2 situations, they passed the ball five times with just two conversions. The only coaches on the defensive side retained were defensive line coach Wayne Nunnely and defensive assistant in breaking down opponents Jay Rodgers.
