Milus, Smith Join Staff

Posted Jan 25, 2011

On Tuesday, the Broncos announced the additions of Secondary Coach Ron Milus and Linebackers Coach Richard Smith to the team's coaching staff.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- A day after tabbing Dennis Allen to lead their defense, the Broncos have bolstered the staff with the additions of Richard Smith as linebackers coach and Ron Milus as secondary coach.

Smith and Milus -- both Broncos assistants earlier in their careers -- return to Denver after filling the same roles the past two seasons under Head Coach John Fox in Carolina.

Smith, who enters his 24th NFL season, has coached for seven organizations in his career, including a three-year stint with the Broncos in the mid-1990s. Prior to joining the Panthers, he also logged four consecutive seasons as a defensive coordinator -- one in Miami and three in Houston.

Milus, who will coach his 12th NFL season in 2011, has worked with secondaries for five teams since breaking into the league as Denver's defensive backs coach in 2000.

With Carolina, both contributed to a unit that ranked among the league's top-18 in total defense each of the last two seasons.

Smith has developed a reputation for his work with that position, producing Pro Bowl-caliber performances from individuals at each of his stops since becoming a full-time defensive assistant with San Francisco in 1997.

In the last six seasons, he's helped Carolina's Jon Beason, Houston's DeMeco Ryans and Miami's Zach Thomas earn trips to the all-star game. In his stint as linebackers coach with San Francisco from 1997-2002, Smith's position group produced four different Pro Bowlers.

In all, Smith has coached nine players to a total of 10 Pro Bowl selections.

The veteran assistant was the Broncos special teams coach from 1993-1996, also assisting with linebackers during the first two years and helping Carl Mecklenburg earn a Pro Bowl berth in 1993.

Smith's special teams unit flourished in 1995 when he helped Glyn Milburn produce one of the best seasons for a returner in Broncos history. Milburn averaged 27 yards per kick return en route to a Pro Bowl berth and a single-season franchise record 1,269 kick return yards.

That season Jason Elam tied a franchise record with 31 field goals made and earned his first Pro Bowl trip.

Milus, who has also worked with the Rams, Giants and Cardinals, helped the Panthers to finish in the top 11 in the NFL in pass defense in both his seasons with the team. That included a debut campaign in which Carolina finished with 22 interceptions -- a 10-pick increase from the previous season.

Other career highlights for Milus include helping Arizona's Dexter Jackson to a six-interception season in 2003 and leading a St. Louis secondary that garnered 16 total interceptions in 2007.

The veteran coach got his start with the Broncos, working with the secondary from 2000-2002. In 2000, the Broncos pulled down 27 interceptions, which still stands as the team's highest single-season total since 1987, as they earned a Wild Card playoff berth. In 2001, Deltha O'Neal grabbed nine interceptions and earned his first Pro Bowl berth.

They join Allen, Mike McCoy (Offensive Coordinator), Jeff Rodgers (Special Teams Coordinator), Clancy Barone (Tight Ends), Brian Callahan (Offensive Quality Control), Adam Gase (Quarterbacks), Dave Magazu (Offensive Line), Wayne Nunnely (Defensive Line), Jay Rodgers (Defensive Quality Control), Eric Studesville (Running Backs) and Tyke Tolbert (Wide Receivers) on Fox's 2011 coaching staff.
