Update on Broncos 2022 coaching staff heading into 2023

Already roughly 60 percent of the top coaches from last year won't return. And that's before new head coach Sean Payton started on staff interviews this week.

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.
