"It has been an absolute dream come true for me to coach for 36 years," Nunnely said in a statement. "I am so thankful for all the opportunities I have been given to have a positive impact on others through the game of football. More than anything, I am proud of the accomplishments of the teams and players I have been so privileged to work with over the years."
Nunnely was the DL coach in Denver from 2009-2011. Prior to that, he spent 12 years with the Chargers.
Jay Rodgers is going to take over the DL coaching responsibilities, according to the team.
