Denver Broncos fire quarterback’s coach T.C. McCartney
Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio is coming off a rough first year in charge. As a result, he has opted to make some changes to his coaching staff following a disappointing 2019 NFL season.
According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post, the Broncos have parted ways with quarterbacks coach T.C. McCartney.
The Broncos have fired quarterbacks coach T.C. McCartney, according to a source who confirmed the report by KOA Radio.
McCartney had been part of former offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello’s coaching tree. Denver had fired Scangarello in order to replace him with new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. As a result, it seems they have chosen to go in a new direction on that side of the ball.
McCartney coached alongside Scangarello with the San Francisco 49ers before joining the Broncos. They certainly had their work cut out trying to make the most with general manager John Elway’s decision to bring in quarterback Joe Flacco as the starter. Although his season was cut short due to injury, it became evident that he was not going to be the long-term solution under center.
While backup quarterback Brandon Allen did not pan as a solid contingency plan, the silver lining in McCartney’s stint in Denver will be his help with the development of rookie quarterback Drew Lock. The former second-round pick showed plenty of promise down the stretch after finishing the year with a 4-1 record as the starter. Lock’s emergence could pay huge dividends for McCartney’s resume when it comes to trying to land his next coaching gig.
