The Broncos haven’t announced their new special teams coordinator yet, but former Colts punter Pat McAfee let the coach out of the bag.

On Twitter, McAfee congratulated former Colts special teams coordinator Tom McMahon for taking the same job with the Broncos.

The Broncos are replacing Brock Olivo, one of six assistants that coach Vance Joseph fired after a 5-11 finish.

McMahon also worked for the Falcons, Rams and Chiefs before arriving in Indianapolis in 2013.

  1. I think Brock Olivo will be a good Special Teams Coordinator a few years from now, but he was in way over his head at this point. Coverage teams were awful, the Broncos return teams were called for penalties on just about every return attempt, and on KOR the returners kept bringing it out of the end zone to zero blocks being made and being tackled inside their 15. And the absolute worst example of his failures was the fake punt they attempted to run against Buffalo in week 3, they just left the o-line on, so the Bills players were pointing to that and calling it as a fake before the ball was snapped, needless to say it didn’t work.

    Olivo needs to go back to work with Dave Toub for a few more years, and get some more seasoning, and learn and be better for it. From the Broncos point of view, literally any change would be an upgrade at this point.
