Linebacker Coach Nolan



I've been a Bronco fan since the mid-70s when I grew up in Colorado.  I remember the Collier "Orange Crush" defense and their excellence at the linebacker position over a number of years, even through personnel changes.  Reading this post reminded me of a Denver Post article I read during the mid-70s or early 80's.  The article was about the Broncos linebacker coach at the time (whose name I had forgotten).  The theme of the article was that the high level of linebacker play was largely due to the coaching at their position.  The article featured interviews with several of Denver's defensive stars at the LB position.  I recall one of the four -- it might have been Swenson but I dont' remember for sure -- saying that pretty much everything he did on the field he owed to the position coach...without this coach he would be far less of player...he know where to go and what to do on every play because of this coach. 

I remember being really impressed when I read Denver Post article at the time, but I had forgotten who the linebackers coach was until I read SlowWhiteGuy's blog entry today.  Does anyone else remember reading this piece?  You had to be around for a while...

Anyway, this gives you an idea of the quality of coaching that the Denver players are getting.
