ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — A new head coach gets to pick his own staff and Sean Payton is making quick work in turning over the Broncos’ group of assistant coaches.
As it stands now, 9NEWS has confirmed 13 of the Broncos’ 17 primary coaches from the 2022 season have either moved on or been told they will not be retained. (This does not include quality control, lower level assistants or intern coaches.)
Three of these primary coaches -- including head coach Nathaniel Hackett, special teams coordinator Dwayne Stukes and head offensive line coach Butch Barry -- were dismissed before the Broncos’ season ended with a 5-12 record.
Broncos coaches who will not return in 2023:
Coordinator: Justin Outten
QB coach: Klint Kubiak
Offensive line: Butch Barry
Asst. offensive line: Ben Steele
Tight ends: Jake Moreland
Running backs: Tyrone Wheatley
Coordinator: Ejiro Evero

2022 Broncos coaches who are still around:

More changes may be coming as Payton is interviewing several candidates for his staff this week, including Vance Joseph for the team’s vacant defensive coordinator position.
