New Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett continues to add to his coaching staff and brings in big names from the football world.
Nathaniel Hackett clearly has a vision with his first coaching staff and he understands very little of the remnants of the staff that languished on the sidelines in Denver last season.
It is expected that following the conclusion of Super Bowl LVI, the Denver Broncos will name Ejiro Evero, the current Los Angeles Rams secondary coach, as their new defensive coordinator.
Ejiro Evero will be joined by a familiar face from his Green Bay days
Evero just turned 41 and will obviously be a bit green in his new position, so the Broncos have decided to back him up with one of the most well-known defensive minds in recent NFL memory.
The Broncos hired Dom Capers as a senior defensive assistant. Capers has a long and storied career dating back to the early 1970s. He was the first ever head coach of the Carolina Panthers as well as the first ever head coach of the Houston Texans.
Most recently, he served as the defensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers from 2009 to 2017. That’s why this move matters because it’s where Evero studied with him.
In addition to this move, the Broncos are waiting to bring in Tyrone Wheatley to be the new running backs coach, replacing Curtis Modkins who is expected to fill the same role with the Minnesota Vikings.
Although Wheatley has been coaching since 2007, he is best remembered for his playing career.
Wheatley still ranks No. 5 on Michigan’s all-time roster and after college he was a first-round pick of the New York Giants and also played for the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders. .
Currently, Wheatley is the head coach at Morgan State University, but he has coached running backs for the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars at the pro level.
Known for his tough, uncompromising running style which he combined with elusive speed during his playing days, Wheatley will be a worthy addition to Denver’s coaching staff.
