Bishop's Return to the Broncos

Posted Aug 9, 2007

Between leaving the Broncos as a player in 1990 and returning to the team as a coaching intern in 2007, Keith Bishop pursued another interesting career.

Broncos Magazine Staff Writer

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Keith Bishop is remembered by Broncos fans for uttering eight famous words in the 1986 AFC Championship game before the start of "The Drive."

"We've got 'em right where we want 'em."

But for a number of years while Bishop worked as a Drug Enforcement Administration agent in Dallas, many of the drug dealers he came in contact with remember him for a different quote:

"You're under arrest."

After retiring in 1990 after 10 years with the Broncos, Bishop spent time pursuing another of his keen interests -- law enforcement.

But with his days busting criminals now over, Bishop is back with the Broncos as an offensive line coaching intern -- and he's enjoying every minute of it.

"(Head Coach) Mike (Shanahan) and I have been talking for the last five, five-and-a-half years, and it's something I've always been interested in," Bishop said. "(It is a) good organization, and a part of my previous life, so it's a lot of fun and a lot of enjoyment."

Bishop said he was proud to have been a part of the organization as a player, and is impressed with how far things have come now that he's returned.

"The atmosphere and everything is geared towards making the players, making the coaches, making the organization productive and successful," Bishop said. "All that is very neat and it makes you feel good that you were previously a part of this and seeing the way it's developed and everything."

Bishop even compared the atmosphere with the Broncos with that of another well-known company he worked with during his time with the government.

"The only thing I can compare it to that I've experienced since being gone is some training we've had with Microsoft, and seeing the way the Microsoft corporation treats their employees," Bishop said. "It's very, very similar and everything is geared for being productive and successful."

The chance to work closely with Rick Dennison, the team's current offensive coordinator and one of his former teammates, has been a reunion of sorts, Bishop said.

"I guess I've known Rico (Dennison) since 1980 or 1981, so there's a lot of years there," Bishop said. "We had a good friendship back when we were players, and we still have a good friendship."

Another man Bishop had ties to as a player and now interacts with as a coaching intern is Shanahan. Bishop said Shanahan is the same man he knew as a player.

"I don't see any change in Mike. He's always been, as far as the football side of it, very intelligent and very positive. He's very adaptive and creative, and as a person, he's the same person I knew when he came here," Bishop said. "Mike seems like he's the same Mike I've always known, which is neat to see that people don't change. He's very intense, he always has been, and he wants to win. That's the bottom line."

Bishop said that a coaching career is not something he's focusing on at this point, but rather he's just trying to help out the team.

"I'm just interacting with the Broncos, that's what I'm doing," Bishop said. "We'll see what happens, and who knows? But this is just interaction with the Broncos and trying to help them out a little bit."

But one thing is certain -- returning to the team in a coaching role has been a pleasure, Bishop said.

"I've been treated wonderfully, and it's great interaction, great learning, and it's been very rewarding and very enjoyable."
