Quarterbacks Coach Greg Knapp Relieved Of His Duties In Denver

For the most part, the Broncos are scrapping Gary Kubiak's entire offensive staff.

Vance Joseph is cleaning house. And for good reason. 

The Denver Broncos finished the 2016 regular season as the No. 27 offense in total yards. The Broncos also led the NFL in three-and-outs and struggled mightily in the redzone. 

As well as second-year quarterback Trevor Siemian performed at times, rookie first-rounder Paxton Lynch was left to languish under Kubiak's "square-peg, round-hole" doctrine. 

After choosing to part ways with Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison, Offensive Line Coach Clancy Barone and others, the Broncos have also dismissed Quarterbacks Coach and Passing Game Coordinator Greg Knapp.

Knapp served as QBs Coach for the Broncos for the last four seasons. He was grafted into Gary Kubiak's staff back in 2015 and helped the Broncos win their third Lombardi Trophy.

But the failures of the offense in 2016, which can largely be laid at Kubiak's feet, have trickled down to most of his staff. Thus far, the only coach expected back is Wide Receivers Coach Tyke Tobert. 

Mike McCoy is expected to sign on with the Broncos as the new offensive coordinator and the team has received permission to interview Miami O-line Coach Jeremiah Washburn.

With McCoy on deck to take over the offense, Bill Musgrave is interviewing on Friday. The Broncos hope to hire him for another offensive role. His work with Derek Carr in Oakland helped turn the franchise around in two short years under Jack Del Rio

The departure of Dennison and Knapp can only mean good things for Paxton Lynch. How the changes will affect Trevor Siemian remains to be seen.
