    Edo783 reported in another thread that he had heard that if/when, when being the case most likely, that Kubiak is hired as our next HC, that he will bring in his good friend, and great OL coach Rick Dennison.

    I searched around and found a couple of pieces that also confirm this. From what I read, it sounds like Dennison will be the next offensive coordinator if he is brought in.

    This link is to a thread on the Broncos website and what the fans have to say:
    http://forums.denverbroncos.com/showthread.php?t=51628&page=1&pp=15

    My question is, what do we know about Dennison other than him implimenting a great OL? Would he be a good fit as an OC, or does he lack the experience needed?

    Here is Dennison's BIO from the Broncos main site:
    Rick Dennison enters his 11th year on the Broncos’ coaching staff and his fifth as offensive line coach. He took over that role in 2001 after spending the previous four seasons (1997-2000) coaching the club's special teams and two years (1995-96) as an offensive assistant.

    Dennison oversees a unit that has annually been regarded as the best in the business. Anchoring the line is five-time Pro Bowl center Tom Nalen, who is joined by Matt Lepsis, Ben Hamilton and George Foster to form the nucleus of a group that looks to continue the legacy of the Broncos’ offensive line. In Dennison’s four seasons as offensive line coach, his group has been pivotal in Denver gaining an NFL-best 9,105 rushing yards over that period. . .

    I think thats enough experience to be an OC, and even if he stumbles along the way he'll have Kubiak there to help him.

    Wow. That just stood out like a sore thumb. That's simply an amazing stat.

    That's an almost guarantee we'll take Bush if he's hired then.

    Houston, again.
    It has also been indicated that Kubes intends to be intimatly involved with the Offesive plan/scheme etc. These two working the offensive side of the ball SHOULD mean some really good things. It's also beeing talked about that the QB coach will also come. Less sure about that one though. The other guy I have heard talked about that SEEMS to be a fairly sure thing is Jerry Gray at the DC position. If they pull that team together it bodes well for us on both sides.

    Granted, yes our offensive line is bad. But run blocking and pass blocking are two totally different things.

    He is just the type of coach we need to help our line.

    True....but if your run game is THAT dominant, then the defense can't pass rush you too much.

    He sounds like exactly what our o-line needs. Hope we get him too.

    oh yes i know this, texans84 but denvers team is good at protecting the qb and the rb, also davis breaks alot of tackles/or makes the first man miss. sorry but the broncos make every RB look good i mean look at portis now, he's nothing like he used to be !

    I really hope he brings that coach with him, as many coaches Kubiak wants to bring from Denver is good with me.

    Coach C. had posted on this a while back. Kubiak has been ok'ed unofficially to bring Dennison, Watson, and several personell and scouts from Denver. Coach C. and Morknolle know more about this though.

    On the contrary, If anything, they'll shy away from burning a high #1 on a RB that is gonna get monster yds f they can play DD or VMo and get just as many and use that pick on the obvious choice.

    Maybe if those 4th round guys can tally up 1500+, then Bush can set some ridiculous record of infinity yards. Yes, they don't stop.:drool:

    Just a theory.

    That would be something that I would love to see. Can anyone provide a link stating that this is even a possibilty please? I just can't hardly see it happening. With Mularkey resigning wouldn't Gray be a great choice to coach the Bills? Sure would be better than Levy (at this point in time, not trying to take anything away from Marv). Gray will be a good head coach someday IMO.

    Dennison is Kubiak's first choice, but he is waiting to see if he will get offered to job to replace Kubiak in Denver. If he is not offered the Broncos OC job it is likely he will be with the Texans next year.

    One person I think this really bodes well for is Wells. He has the possiblity of being our Mike Anderson. Of course, this all depends on who we draft.

    Dear Lord:

    Please don't let Kubiak inherit Capers moronic teachings of stupidity. Please don't let him draft VY. Let him make the smart, educated moves.

    Amen
