They all had to start somewhere. Like plenty of coaches, members of the Broncos’ staff started their careers in small towns such as Valparaiso, Ind., Atherton, Calif., and Platteville, Wis., before rising up the ladder to bigger colleges and, ultimately, the NFL. Throughout the season, The Denver Post asked seven Broncos position coaches about their first job in the profession: ZACH AZZANNI Now: Broncos receivers coach. Then: Valparaiso (Ind.) University receivers coach, 1999. Azzanni: “I remember my office was in a closet — literally in a closet. I put a little desk in there. I helped run the weight room as the assistant strength coach. I painted the field every Friday. But it was a great experience because I got to coach my own position group at an early age. That got me going coaching wideouts right out of the gate. “I played at Central Michigan and my job at Valpo was as a volunteer in 1998. I was a substitute teacher — middle-school gym for the … [Read more...] about At the beginning: Broncos assistants recall how they got their start in coaching

Jim Washburn had never met Bradley Chubb, but Washburn once coached the greatest rookie pass rusher in NFL history, so he walked through the doors of N.C. State last spring to see what he had heard was the next big thing. Chubb checked the first box. “We went into the athletics facility and everybody spoke to him,” Washburn said. “The lady at the reception desk got up and gave him a hug. We’re walking down to the weight room and there’s a custodian that he went over to and he gave a big hug. It was every single person in the whole place. They all went over and hugged him and he knew their names.” Washburn is retired from the NFL sidelines where he spent two decades as a defensive line coach between Tennessee, Philadelphia and Detroit. In 1999, Washburn mentored Titans’ edge rusher Jevon Kearse to 14.5 sacks (a rookie record). Today, Washburn provides individual instruction with top NFL draft prospects. His clients just happen to include the … [Read more...] about Broncos’ Bradley Chubb in position to become NFL’s greatest rookie pass rusher
She shouldn’t be there. Because on this July morning at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, New York, it’s all about Buffalo Bills football. Week 1 of their 2018 training camp. The sun is shining, the Polisenni Track and Field grandstands are packed, and the gridiron is teeming with NFL players, hopefuls, coaches, and assistants. And since this is the NFL, all those players and hopefuls and coaches and assistants on the field are men. All but one. At the 30-yard line stands Phoebe Schecter. She’s a two-time recipient of a Bill Walsh NFL Diversity Coaching Fellowship, a league-wide program established in 1987 that provides NFL coaching experience for minority and, more recently, female coaches. For the second straight year, the 29-year-old Connecticut native has a three-week summer coaching internship with the Bills. It’s a gig that will hopefully one day lead to her dream job: Coaching full time. “I want football to be a part of my life 24/7,” … [Read more...] about Why aren’t more women coaching men?
