Broncos agree to terms with Special Teams Coordinator Tom McMahon

Posted Jan 10, 2018

McMahon spent the last five seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Head Coach Vance Joseph added to his staff Wednesday when the Broncos agreed to terms with new Special Teams Coordinator Tom McMahon.

“We’re very excited to add Tom McMahon to our staff,” Joseph said. “He’s an experienced special teams coach with a direct teaching style that emphasizes fundamentals. Tom has a proven track record developing young players on special teams and will bring leadership and energy to this important phase of our team.”

McMahon, who has spent 11 years in the NFL, just finished his fifth season as special teams coordinator with the Indianapolis Colts. He served as the Chiefs’ special teams coach in 2012 and previously coached three years in St. Louis as the Rams’ special teams coordinator.

The 26-year coaching veteran has worked with his fair share of impressive players. While in Atlanta, where he spent a pair of seasons from 2007-08, McMahon coached kick returner Jerious Norwood.

In St. Louis, he coached Danny Amendola, who led the NFL in 20-plus yard punt returns in 2009 and 2010.

Then, in Indianapolis, McMahon coached future Hall of Fame kicker Adam Vinatieri and All-Pro punter Pat McAfee. The Colts’ punter set several franchise records under McMahon’s tutelage before he retired ahead of the 2017 season.

As a unit, Indianapolis’ special teams ranked near the top of the league. In 2015, the group set an NFL record for fewest kickoff return yards allowed, and they ranked in the top three in opponent kick-return average.

In 2017, the Carroll College product continued to show his skill in working with individual players when he helped punter Rigoberto Sanchez to one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history. The Colts were just one of four teams to force multiple special-teams turnovers without giving the ball away on special teams.

McMahon replaces former special teams coordinator Brock Olivo.
