“He’s a great man and a great mentor off the field as well. He helped me become a mature person off the field. He’s a great technician coach. He was always fiery and he always had it in gameday and practice—he always came with it every day to work. Those were things I learned from him. No matter how you feel, you have to come to work every day, day in and day out. It’s all about consistency and he showed a good example and was a role model for our defensive linemen.”

“He definitely was, in my opinion, a very great coach in this league. He’s very established, and if you look at his résumé and the guys that he’s coached there are a lot of Pro Bowlers and a lot of great players. He’s going to be missed and we definitely learned a lot from him. He brought a lot to work. Guys fed off his tenacity. His passion for the game was intense and we all fed off that.”

“Coach Nunnely is all about perfecting your craft. He’s a perfectionist. He wants you to do everything with technique and just work hard. It’s something he preached to us. All the guys are going to miss him this year.”

    Always just as sad to see a great coach move on as it is when great players do the same. Thanks for your efforts as a Bronco and the league we all love so much coach…

    Bon voyage d bag. We had the worst unit in the league. Why do we celebrate failure in this country? Jamie Diamond. Obama. Jim Kelly.

    Enough. It is time to get tough on these losers.
