ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - The Denver Broncos have hired Ed Lambert as a college scout. A veteran of 26 years in the college and professional coaching ranks, Lambert comes to the Broncos from Vanderbilt University, where he was assistant head coach and running backs coach.
Lambert, 53, coached 10 years at Vanderbilt, including one season (1997) as offensive coordinator. He joined the staff in 1992 after four seasons at Baylor, where he coached the quarterbacks and running backs. Lambert's other collegiate coaching experience has come at New Mexico (Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator, 1987), Iowa State (Running Backs, 1986), California (Running Backs, 1982-83), Howard (Inside Linebackers/Defensive Ends, 1981) and Boise State (Running Backs, 1976-80).
Lambert coached two seasons in the United States Football League with the Los Angeles Express, tutoring the running backs. He has also served coaching fellowships with the Philadelphia Eagles (1995), Atlanta Falcons (1993) and Seattle Seahawks (1991).
Lambert began his coaching career in 1972 at Ravenswood High School in East Palo Alto, Calif., and in 1974 moved to Fremont High School in Oakland, Calif., where two of his teams won city championships.
A native of Beaumont, Texas, Lambert is a graduate of McClymonds High School in Oakland. He was an All-Golden Gate Conference defensive lineman at Merritt College in 1967 and an All-Coast offensive lineman at California State-Hayward in 1969, helping lead his team to the Far Western Conference championship. Lambert earned his bachelor's degree in physical education from San Jose State in 1972. He and his wife, Jeanette, have two grown children.
