Broncos putting together staff of former Raiders coaches, adding DB coach Marcus Robertson

New, comments

I guess the Broncos figure turnabout is fair play. After the Raiders last two head coach hires were former Broncos Defensive Coordinators, new Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is filling out his staff with former Raiders coaches.

The latest moves are former Raiders DB coaches Joe Woods and Marcus Robertson.

Woods becomes the team’s Defensive Coordinator, promoted from DB coach, and Robertson takes the DB coach job, following Woods just as he did in Oakland in 2015.

Woods spent just one season in Oakland on then head coach Dennis Allen’s staff. He previously had stops with the Buccaneers and Vikings. His promotion in Denver will be his first Defensive Coordinator job. He replaces Wade Phillips.

Robertson was Woods’s Assistant DB coach in 2014. He became the only returning coach from the previous staff and was promoted due to Charles Woodson’s strong recommendation. Robertson reunites with Woods in Denver.

Former Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave was also recently hired as the team’s Quarterbacks coach.
