The Broncos’ offense has been a big disappointment this season, and the team is reportedly trying something new in hopes of making it big in Sunday’s game against the Raiders.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that head coach Nathaniel Hackett surrenders the role of an offensive caller. Quarterback coach Clint Kubiak will be the one he plays instead of Hackett.
According to the report, Hackett briefed the team on the change at their Saturday night meeting. It’s an important move for Hackett, as he was hired because of his history as an offensive coordinator, and the handover is an acknowledgment that he hasn’t had the success the Broncos hoped to see in that role.
Kubiak has experience as an operator. He had those responsibilities as the Vikings’ offense coordinator last season.
