Dennison Accepts Texans Coaching Offer

January 12, 2010

Rick Dennison, a Broncos coach for 24 years will be leaving the franchise to become the Offensive Coordinator of Gary Kubiaks’ Houston Texans according to the Denver Post. Dennison leaves Denver after being an assistant coach here for 15 years, including the last nine seasons as the offensive line coach and some time as Offensive Coordinator under Mike Shanahan.

Last year, Josh McDaniels demoted him to only coaching the Offensive Line, making him only one of two coaches under Shanahan to remain on the staff. The other, Bobby Turner, is still with the Broncos but is currently being interviewed by Mike Shanahan in Washington, so whether he will continue to stay with the Broncos is in question.

This will mean big changes in the running philosophy including a likely full switch to a power blocking scheme, that Josh McDaniels used in New England. Previously they have used the zone blocking system, and this year used a hybrid.

We wish the best of luck to Dennison in Houston, where we are sure he will find plenty of success. He has done an excellent job here in Denver, and we are sure will do a good job in the future too.
