info on Troy Calhoun:

Troy Calhoun begins his third season on the Broncos’ coaching staff in 2005 and his first year as the team’s assistant to head coach. Calhoun, who entered the NFL’s coaching ranks in 2003 with Denver as its defensive assistant, also worked for 12 years as a college assistant and has 14 combined years of coaching experience at the professional and collegiate levels.

In 2004, Calhoun served as the Broncos’ offensive assistant/special teams coach and contributed to Denver’s offense earning a No. 5 overall NFL ranking (3rd in AFC) with a 395.8 yards-per-game average. Quarterback Jake Plummer set the Broncos’ single-season passing yards record (4,089) and tied the team’s one-year touchdown mark (27) while converted fullback Reuben Droughns posted the first 1,000-yard season of his career (1,240).

Calhoun’s first year coaching in the NFL was spent as a defensive assistant with Denver in 2003, and he also was involved in coaching the team’s kickoff and punt returners that season. He helped guide the NFL's fourth-ranked defense, which allowed only 277.1 yards per game and was pivotal in Denver securing its first playoff berth since 2000. In addition, Calhoun worked with players such as Pro Bowl linebacker Al Wilson, who led the team in tackles with 128 (99 solo), and defensive end Bertrand Berry, who posted a team-high 11.5 sacks (52 yds.).

Before joining the Broncos’ coaching staff, Calhoun was Wake Forest’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2001-02. He helped lead the 2002 Demon Deacons to a No. 1 ranking in the Atlantic Coast Conference in total offense (408.1 ypg.) for the only time since the ACC expanded to nine teams in 1992. Wake Forest also led the ACC in plays (990), fewest turnovers (16) and turnover margin (+18). In addition, that team set numerous school records, including total offense, yards (5,305), points (356) and first downs (274). In the 28 bowl games following the 2002 season, Wake Forest was one of only two offenses with more than 240 yards in both rushing and passing as it amassed 497 total yards in a 38-17 victory over Oregon.

The 2001 Wake Forest team was one of only seven teams in the nation to score more than 30 points in each of the final four games of the season. Its total included a 34-30 victory against Virginia, the school's first win in this series in 18 years, and a 33-31 win at North Carolina in which Wake Forest overcame a 24-0 halftime deficit.

Calhoun coached at Ohio University from 1995-2000, where he helped turn one of the nation's worst programs into a consistent winner as quarterbacks coach (1995-96) and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach (1997-2000). In the 10 seasons from 1985-1994, Ohio won a total of only 17 games, but the program would dramatically improve during Calhoun’s six years in Athens, Ohio.

As the quarterbacks coach, Calhoun oversaw the development of Kareem Wilson, who was the 1996 Mid-American Conference Player of the Year. Calhoun was promoted to offensive coordinator following the 1996 season, and in his first season at the helm, the 1997 team finished with an 8-3 record that was the school's best season in 29 years and Ohio’s first winning season since 1982.

The 1997 Ohio team defeated Maryland to register the school's first-ever win over an ACC opponent in nine attempts. His coaching efforts in 1999 were crucial in the development of quarterback Dontrell Jackson, who was the only Division I-A true freshman quarterback to start 11 games and finished as runner-up for the MAC Freshman of the Year award. In 2000, Ohio defeated two bowl teams (Minnesota and Marshall) for the first time in school history and recorded the program's fifth consecutive season with a winning record in the Mid-American Conference. It averaged 31 points per game and set numerous school records, including total offense (418.1), passing efficiency (125.3) and first downs (246).

Calhoun was a graduate assistant at his alma mater, the U.S. Air Force Academy, from 1989-90 and later returned to the Academy to serve as the recruiting coordinator as well as the junior varsity’s offensive coordinator from 1993-94.

The starting quarterback for the 1986 Falcons, Calhoun was one of only two freshmen to letter on the 1985 Academy team that finished 12-1 and ranked fifth in the country. He graduated from the Academy with a bachelor's degree and finished as a member of both the Dean's and Commandant's Lists for Academic and Military excellence. He also received a master's degree in Business Administration from Oklahoma City University in 1992. He served from 1989-1995 as an Active Duty Officer in the U.S. Air Force.

Calhoun, 38, and his wife, Amanda, have a son, Tyler, and daughter, Amelia, and the family resides in Parker, Colo.

I think that only matters to anonymous message board posters with an agenda or to stir the pot with nonsense. I've seen so much of this kind of stuff I'd like to delete it all since guys in the NFL don't really care about partisan college allegiances.

I know...but it gets old and this tired angle adds nothing to this forum except to inspire petty bickering....wasn't so much a shot at you...just a shot to the people who would reply. Let's not beat this silliness into the forum further. I have a hard time posting in all this nonsense myself.
