The Denver Broncos are firing offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello after one season in the position. The Broncos used three separate quarterbacks this season, produced a 1,000-yard rusher, 1,000-yard receiver, broke rookie tight end receiving records, and ended the season 4-1 after Drew Lock took over the starting QB position.
However, the Broncos boasted the 28th-ranked passing offense, the 20th-ranked rushing offense, and the 28th-ranked points-for team in the NFL.

The Broncos’ offense was relatively healthy with Ron Leary, Ja’Waun James, Tim Patrick Joe Flacco and Andy Janovich being the pieces that missed major time. One of the biggest issues with the Broncos this season was their inability to execute good plays on third down and the the trick plays they did run being really bad. Fans routinely criticized the Noah Fant tight end reverse that was attempted three times in 2019, totaling -12 yards.
The Broncos will be on the coaching hunt this off-season with possible top candidates being…
- Eric Bieniemy (Chiefs)
- Brian Daboll (Bills)
- Byron Leftwich (Buccaneers)
- Greg Roman (Ravens)
