Report: Broncos hire Tom McMahon as special teams coordinator

Don’t let the trick play fail fool you, Tom McMahon has a solid special teams record in his time with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Denver Broncos on Tuesday agreed to terms with former Indianapolis Colts special teams coordinator Tom McMahon.

McMahon is famous for the epic fake punt fail the Colts ran in 2015 against the New England Patriots. It was hilariously bad, but don’t let the GIF above fool you. McMahon can coach a special teams unit.

Here is how the Colts special teams unit ranked each year McMahon was in charge according to Football Outsiders:

Under Brock Olivo the Broncos special teams unit ranked 31st in the NFL. We’ll take that improvement with the occasional epic fail moment.
