John Fox Adds Another Carolina Coach To Broncos Staff, But Still Looks For Defensive Coordinator

On Tuesday night, the Denver Broncos announced the addition of two more coaches to John Fox's coaching staff. The first coach is Jeff Rodgers, a former member of Fox's Carolina staff. Rodgers is in his eighth year as an NFL assistant and spent the last two seasons with Fox in Carolina, working as the special teams coordinator in 2010. He will assume that role with the Broncos.

From 2003-2007, Rodgers was the San Francisco 49ers' special teams coach and spent one season in the college ranks doing the same for the Kansas St. Wildcats. His brother, Jay, is the Broncos' defensive quality control coach.

Adam Gase, in his third season with the Broncos, received a promotion from the team's wide receivers coach to the quarterbacks coach. He will now work with John Fox and offensive coordinator in developing Tim Tebow.

The Broncos are still looking for a defensive coordinator after Jim Mora Jr. withdrew his name from consideration and the Carolina Panthers hired Sean McDermott to fill that role. The Packers' defensive line coach Mike Trgovac remains a possibility once the team's playoff ends.
