Former UTEP Head Coach and Pittsburgh Steelers Offensive Line coach Sean Kugler is interviewing for the Broncos Offensive Line coach position today.
Chris Strausser was hired by Vance Joseph and the Broncos last season to serve as the Broncos Assistant Offensive Line coach under now former Offensive Line coach Jeff Davidson. While Davidson focused on more power concepts, Strausser’s job was to teach the zone concepts so that the line would be versatile and able to execute both concepts on game day.
He served as the Associate Head Coach/Offensive Line coach for the University of Washington from 2014 to 2016. He also the Offensive Line coach/Run Game Coordinator for Boise State from 2010 to 2013. During his tenure at Boise State, he coached now Denver Broncos starting center Matt Paradis so there is some familiarity there.
Keeping Strausser or promoting him to the top Offensive Line coach would keep some continuity at that position.
