Klis: Broncos retaining five incumbent assistants

Last updated: Jan 20, 2015 3:18 PM

As expected, several members of John Fox's coaching staff will remain with the team in 2015 under Gary Kubiak, per Mike Klis:

  • Eric Studesville, who was Denver's interim coach after Josh McDaniels was fired, will keep coaching running backs
  • Clancy Barone will shift from tight ends back to offensive line, which he coached under McDaniels in 2010
  • Tyke Tolbert, who came to Denver from Carolina along with Fox, will stick around to tutor the wide receivers
  • Strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson also remains; Richesson led a much needed overhaul and modernization of Denver's training facilities and methods

No word on the fate of quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp, who is also said to be a candidate to replace Kubiak as Baltimore's OC.

Update: According to Klis, Knapp is indeed staying in Denver.
