Broncos hire Jerry Rosburg as senior assistant to head coach Nathaniel Hackett


Rookie head coach Nathaniel Hackett has called in some help.

After his first two games as Broncos coach were marred by game management issues, the team hired Jerry Rosburg as a senior assistant, a league source confirmed. Rosburg, a longtime Ravens assistant who was the special teams coordinator and associate head coach to John Harbaugh, will help Hackett with game and clock management decisions.

Rosburg helped shape the Baltimore special teams into one of the NFL’s top units perennially, and provides Hackett a seasoned sounding board. Rosburg performed a similar role for Harbaugh in Baltimore. The longtime coaching veteran was with the Broncos during practices this week before being hired  Friday ahead of the team’s Week 3 showdown against the 49ers on Sunday Night Football.

Hackett admitted earlier this week that he needs help getting into a better communication flow with quarterback Russell Wilson.
