According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Denver Broncos will interview San Francisco 49ers Quarterback’s Coach Rich Scangarello for their Offensive Coordinator position.

Scangarello will interview with the Broncos on Monday. He spent a lot of time coaching at small schools, before landing his first NFL job with the Oakland Raiders as a quarterbacks assistant trying to make JaMarcus Russell successful.

His return to the NFL happened in 2015 when he joined the Atlanta Falcons as an offensive quality control assistant under Kyle Shanahan. He returned to Shanahan’s staff in 2017 as the quarterbacks coach and helped make Nick Mullens a thing this past season.

With just four seasons as a coach at the NFL level, he is definitely on the greener side of things.


The 49ers have denied the Broncos from interviewing their Quarterback’s coach Rich Scangarello for their vacant Offensive Coordinator position. However, the Broncos are not giving up per reports and this isn’t dead just yet.

So stay tuned! Broncos GM John Elway and 49ers GM John Lynch will likely talk and potentially work this out.
