Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett is starting to work on his first coaching staff in Denver and a report on Friday brought word on one offensive coordinator candidate.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Chargers tight end Kevin Koger is set to interview for the job. Koger and Hackett won’t have to spend a lot of time on introductions when they do meet.

Koger spent the 2019 and 2020 seasons on the Green Bay staff as an offensive quality control coach. Hackett was the team’s offensive coordinator during those seasons and Koger has already spoken to the Packers about the vacancy that Hackett left behind.

Packers offensive line coach/run game coordinator Adam Stenavich is also considered a candidate for the offensive coordinator job in Denver.

  1. What is it with all these QC guys getting shots at top level coaching positions? Whatever happened to working up through position coaching so you can demonstrate leadership and ability to teach concepts/ techniques, coach players up? I’m a big believer in analytics, especially for in-game management—down & distance, clock management, situational football. But there’s a big difference between getting the most out of data and getting the most out of players.

  2. There’s a brain-drain on the offensive side of the ball due to the predominance of offensive guys getting hired as head coaches.

    Mystique, not a popular name anymore but, Jon Gruden started as a QC guy in GB under Holmgren, became the Recievers coach, and then left for Philly as OC with Andy Ried.
    We all know the rest of the story but just saying, it’s not that uncommon for coached to leap-frog others on a staff. John Harbaugh was an ST coach when Baltimore hired him.
