Default [Sports Radio 610] Only 2 coaches retained from old staff

Sports Radio 610 said only 2 coaches from the old staff will return. Wide Receivers coach Kippy Brown and Special Teams coordinator Joe Marciano. Good news that no others are coming back.

woohoo! I'm glad Marciano is staying. He's a class act, and his unit was one of the only bright spots last season (well, except for all of the missed FGs by Brown).

Good news!

Too bad that John Hoke couldn't be retained. I think that Buchanon helped his way out though.

I'm surprised any of the coaches were retained as this seems to imply
that the new HC will not be free to pick his own WR and ST coach.

I think it implies Kubiak has already chosen his staff but didn't have a WR and ST coach in mind.

Hurray for Coach Joe.

As I understand it, it is not unusual for new coaches to keep some of the better coaches from the previous staff. Keeping a bit of institutional memory helps.

I really wanted to keep Joe Marciano, so I'm thrilled. The Texans kick and punt coverage is really solid. And if I remember correctly, it was Marciano who had his eye on a certain Division I-AA wide receiver/return man.

I'm glad for Kippy Brown, too. Obviously the Texas thought highly enough of him to grant him a head coaching interview, and I'm happy they want to keep him.

Does this mean that we can stop blaming the receivers for Carr's less-than-adequate performance?

We still need to make sure that Bradford gets his due.

I'll say - between the drops by multiple receivers and the "Armstrong doesn't play because he doesn't run good routes" stuff I'd question the coaching. I guess I'd be wrong, or at least the front office see it differently.

you think the coach has anything to do with a WR butter fingers ???? Sure there are basic fundimentals all FB players know so if we have to show them how to catch the ball after every play than they dont need to be in the NFL !!!

Sad to see Hoke get let go, but he should find a college D-coordinator position pretty easily especially with his resume with Florida and what he did with the DBs for the Texans. Keeping Marciano and Kippy are pretty solid and I doubt Kippy remains as the WR coach.

If you'll recall, Dre had the dropsies his first year; his second year he spent A LOT of training camp in front of the football canon or whatever you call it. The Chronicle at the time reported how he said he came home with "his hands red and sore" every night. He caught much better that seson. So there are things you can practice to catch better. I'm sure there are other drills they can run to improve their hands.

Also, the most sure-handed receiver on the team, Armstrong, didn't play much. I think that is a definite coach's decision (although not necessarily the receiver coach) that affected the number of drops this year. It certainly won't cure other receivers' butterfingers, but it certainly could have reduced our drops if he had been in there in front of Bradford.

What's interesting to me is that if this is true, Kubiak is picking his new staff while still employed by the Broncos in the midst of a SB run. They could have made this agreement during the interview but it still makes me wonder a bit ...

This is what I was thinking. Everything I hear on ESPN, see on this MB, is like it is a forgone conclusion that our next HC is Kubiak. Which I think is great, but like you said it must have been agreed upon during the interview, Kubiak would have to be allowed input on the WHOLE staff it would seem to me.

Glad to see Coach Joe stayin', I think we have a solid ST unit.

And he was a former OC. What is interesting to me is a couple of things, one which you mentioned. Also the WRs were not part of the problem with our passing attack if he was asked to be back. Y'all may remember many people were complaining about route running. Secondly, it could help resigning Gaffney. Thirdly, where does Kippy coach? Possibly RB coach to help out with Bush? Possibly QB to help out DC/VY? What I think it signals is a heavy focus on offense in the short term with Kippy, the next OC and Kubiak.

I imagine that Kubiak is putting his staff together on his off time. I'm sure the Texans have already asked him who he would like to retain.

The Texans have not had a second round of interviews, and the applicant pool is shrinking by the day. I'm pretty sure the deal is done with Kubiak.

I bet you are right, and I hope so too.
Very true about the pool of applicants shrinking daily. That was beginning to worry me if the Broncos keep winning.
