UPDATE: Broncos tight end Clancy Barone will split the duty of offensive line coach with Coach Wylie.
Since Rick Dennison left to take the offensive coordinator position of the Houston Texans the Broncos were left to fill his old position… so they went to Canada. According to the Denver Post the Broncos have hired Bob Wylie (Not be confused with Bill Murray’s character Bob Wiley from the hilarious movie What About Bob), a now former assistant coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Also according to the Denver Post below is his track record.
Wylie, who coached at Colorado State early in his career, has coached seven Pro Bowl offensive linemen in his previous NFL stops in Arizona, Tampa Bay and Chicago. He also coached tight ends for Cincinnati and spent two years as a Jets assistant.
In other words Coach Wylie is not totally without NFL experience. This means that in this past week the Broncos have hired a coach from Canada and another named Studesville. You at least have to admire the creativity of Josh McDaniels. If the offensive line play continues to decline next, we’ll just have to blame Canada.
