Will an inexperienced coaching staff be just what the Broncos need?

Hello, Bronco country!

The Broncos’ intro presser for new coordinating staff and post coaches from Coach Nathaniel Hackett was largely what you’d expect – typical promises, appropriate football coaching cliches, talks about “collaboration”… you know, “coachspeak”.

“As for specializing in anything, it’s a collaborative effort. …It came to a fit [for] this week by not being too complex. You just don’t want to take everything out of the playbook. It’s very easy to do, but make sure everyone is on the same page and agreeing to the game plan throughout the week. – Justin Outten, Offensive Coordinator

“You have to start with the evaluation of your players. You need to see who is on your list. You have to see what they do well and then the scheme has to fit your players. You can’t go the other way with this. – Ejiro Evero, defensive coordinator

“It’s important to build relationships with the players. They’re more accepting of your coaching when you build a relationship with them…I think the foundation of your relationship is allowing you to coach players harder and make the adjustments you need. – Dwayne Stukes, Special Teams Coordinator

But that doesn’t mean there was anything wrong with it. If the coaches just followed these words, it would even be great. If for once a coach who promises to “build the scheme to fit the players” actually does it, I’ll be flabbergasted and impressed (looking at you fire Pat Shurmur!)

And watch the presserit was hard do not to be excited by the energy in the room – even if none of the new coaches or coordinators have any experience at their new level.

Considering how the Broncos have performed over the past five seasons, I’m all for starting over completely with a group of guys who’ve never done it before. The Broncos needed young, diverse blood in that practice room and now they have it.

While Hackett intends to be the caller of offensive play, his OC Justin Outten is one of the biggest question marks for me. After all, Outten was Hackett’s third choice for a job interview, and his resume barely includes high-level NFL coaching experience.

The Pennsylvania native started out as a graduate assistant at his alma mater Syracuse, moved to high school to coach Westfield High in Houston, joined the Atlanta Falcons first as a trainee, then as an offensive assistant before moving on. went to the Green Bay Packers three years ago as the tight ends position coach.

My favorite part of this resume, however, isn’t the NFL or the college stuff.

It’s high school coaching.

And his answer to a question about what this experience taught him, was everything:

“Coaching in high school was probably the best decision I ever made in terms of going down to a lower level. …The responsibility you take on as a teacher apart from coaching is just [learning] organizational skills and making sure everyone is on the same page. You get to see the different learning styles throughout this class. I worked specifically in the special education department, so I dealt with a wide variety of different learning styles.

I have a very high regard for teachers. And when it comes to teaching and coaching, I totally agree that the accountability and organizational skills required to do both jobs is no joke.

In addition to this, Outten’s teaching duties involved working in special education. You don’t do this job for seven years unless you like it – and you do it well.

“In this high school itself, it was a free/reduced lunch situation and there were a lot of guys who had nowhere to rest most nights. I learned a lot from these children. In fact, I learned more from them than they probably learned from me.

The offensive coordinator noted that teaching football was one thing. But figuring out how to get some of those kids to train; ensure they have all eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner; making sure they maintained their grades to stay on the team…that was something else.

“That attention span at that age – there’s a lot of social media and a lot of things on their minds, so you have to find ways to connect with those kids. I thought that was very beneficial.

So maybe this is all just a feel-good story about the next offensive coordinator. But when next season comes – and the Broncos are still [likely] in QB purgatory – we’ll see how that translates to Outten’s actual ability to to be a better coach for youngsters, superstars, rotating quarterbacks…

But that’s what I’m here for.

“You are not only a coach, but you are also a mentor. You are a father figure; you are an educator. You’re still dealing with a ton of different gymnastics throughout the day. That’s what I loved. »

Outten’s former boss at Westfield – then head coach Corby Meekins – said Outten was “everything I thought he would be” as a manager.

“The units he coached always played smart and disciplined,” Meekins said, noting that Outten was great at building relationships with his athletes. “He really connects with these guys, people like him, and when people know he cares about them, he can bring out the best on the pitch.”
