Broncos offensive staff take shape with hirings of coordinator Justin Outten, QB coach Klint Kubiak – The Athletic


Days before beginning a whirlwind interview tour that ultimately landed him the job as the Broncos’ new head coach, Nathaniel Hackett said if he were to earn a job coaching a franchise, he would seek to set up his staff and its general. coaching structure much the same way the Packers did during his three seasons there as offensive coordinator.

Hey, if it ain’t broke — Green Bay’s 39-9 regular-season record since 2019, fueled by buoyant offensive numbers, suggests it wasn’t — why fix it?

Enter Justin Outten, who has spent the past three seasons as a tight ends coach in Green Bay with Hackett and was hired Wednesday as the team’s new offensive coordinator. Richmond Flowers, the agent representing Outten and Hackett, confirmed the news on Twitter. The Broncos are also hiring former Vikings offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak to serve as quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator, a source confirmed to The Athletic.

These are the early days of his tenure, but it’s clear that Hackett plans to build an offensive system similar to the one that was built in Green Bay, where head coach Matt LaFleur called the games Hackett served as coordinator offensively, Luke Getsy was the quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator and Adam Stenavich was the running game coordinator and also served as the offensive line coach.

LaFleur was comfortable creating a young offensive staff when he took the job in Green Bay, surrounding himself with rising assistants eager to take on bigger roles. Hackett seems to be following a similar trend.
