The Denver Broncos 2013 coaching staff is almost completely assembled.

The Broncos lost former offensive coordinator Mike McCoy to San Diego, replaced him with quarterbacks coach Adam Gase (shortly thereafter, Ken Whisenhunt, one of Denver’s OC candidates also signed with San Diego), blocked the Chargers from hiring Matt Russell as their next general manager, let secondary coach Ron Milus go and replaced him with defensive quality control coach Cory Undlin.

Conclusions:  San Diego really likes Denver’s coaching staff and the Broncos still need a quarterbacks coach.  Want to bet San Diego will hire whichever QB coach Denver targets and makes him their own offensive consultant?

In all seriousness, the Broncos do need a QB coach and Gase is going to help them find one.

“We’ll bring somebody in,” said Gase.  “We’ll talk to some guys.  Coach (John) Fox, John Elway and myself, we’ll talk to some guys and figure out who the best fit for us is.”

The coaching carousel should be ending soon for the Broncos.  Frankly, it will be nice to not have to worry about who-will-replace-who anymore.

    I don’t know about as the QB coach, but if and when Brandon Stokely retires, the Broncos are crazy if they don’t immediately make a spot for him on the staff.

    QB Coach: What’s wrong with “The Duke”, himself? He’s right there!

    Need someone else to work directly with Peyton to break down game film pregame and help put together the gameplan for the coming week.

    Then you need those eyes in the sky to help identify specific errors (broncos) and weaknesses (opponents defense) so Manning can get on the horn and explain what he is seeing and get feedback as to what he should have seen or be on the lookout for.

    Gase’s job once the game starts is to take the information he is receiving from the 4 position coaches and figure out the right play call in the next series to accommodate for an opponents strength or exploit their weakness.

    It’s too much work for just Gase and Manning to handle it alone.

    Sorry, I’m bored atm and just felt like rambling a bit haha.

    I’d love to see guys like Terrell Davis, John Lynch, Brian Dawkins and Brandon Stokley coaching up the young bucks.
