Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett turning play calling duties over to QB coach Klint Kubiak – The Denver Post


Broncos first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett is turning play-calling duties over to one of his offensive assistants in an attempt to help jumpstart the NFL’s worst scoring offense.

Quarterbacks coach Klint Kubiak will call plays Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders, a source confirmed to The Post on Sunday morning. NFL Network first reported the change.

Kubiak called plays last season in Minnesota. He will handle the primary duties and get input from offensive coordinator Justin Outten and Hackett, a source said, but ultimately will be at the controls for Russell Wilson and the Broncos offense.

Hackett and the offensive staff worked tested out the change during practice over the course of the week and, according to a source, informed the team of the change during a team meeting on Saturday night.
