Q&A with Ron Milus

Posted Jun 14, 2011

Secondary Coach Ron Milus discusses rejoining the Broncos, his desire for an aggressive defensive back group that is fundamentally sound and more in a Q&A with DenverBroncos.com.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Secondary Coach Ron Milus began his NFL coaching career with the Broncos in 2000 before going on to coach the secondary with three more franchises. Now, entering his 12th season coaching in the league, Milus is back in Denver ready to make sure the defensive backs are a strength of the team.

Before the coaches headed on a short vacation, Milus sat down with DenverBroncos.com for a Q&A session.

What has this offseason been like for you?
"You could call it hectic. It's been different, you could say. I'm coming back to something I already knew, but it's still different because it's been a few years since I've been here, plus the fact that we're a start-up group and we don't get a chance to work with our players. So that has made it a little bit hectic, because you're not sure what you have. We may not be sure what we have until July comes around and it's almost time to play. So that part is a little bit uneasy, you could say."

Has it given you an opportunity to do anything football-wise you normally wouldn't if there were OTAs and workouts?
"Really we're doing a lot of the same things we would've done had we had players here, other than the fact that we're not meeting with them and going out there and practicing. We're still doing offseason projects, where we're getting ready for our opponents for next year, doing some of the prep work now. Some of those same things would happen even if they were here. But I guess you could say we're ahead of the game as far as that's concerned.

Are you excited to be back in Denver after staring your coaching career with the Broncos?
"I was fired up about that, because I've been at five different organizations and this is my favorite. Not knowing it then when I came in here as a rookie coach in 2000, the grass is not always as green as it was here. I like it here. It's been a good experience being back to something you know."

How has it been working with Assistant Secondary Coach Sam Garnes?
"It's been good. Me and Sam have gotten along ever since our days in Carolina. We used to go on runs in the city of Charlotte together, so we've got a good relationship and it will work out very well for us both."

How beneficial is it to have veterans like Champ Bailey and Brian Dawkins in a secondary?
"You always like guys that have been there and done that. I'm very comfortable with guys that have might have a little gray hair on the side of their head and have gone through the wars of a football season. I'm looking forward to working with those veteran football players and gaining from their experiences plus with mine, hopefully we can make ourselves a pretty decent secondary here with the Broncos."

What are some of your coaching philosophies?
"I like to be technique sound. I think that if you don't have some type of foundation as far as technique, you're always going to struggle. Hopefully when we do get started, we'll become a fundamentally sound secondary. That will be half the battle, because I already know that Champ has got ability and Dawk has got ability, so if we can just be sound in what we do, it gives us a chance for when it does heat up on a Sunday, we have something to fall back upon."

What should fans expect to see out of the defensive back group in 2011?
"I hope we'll play aggressive, hopefully we'll turn the ball over. I've been accustomed to being with the teams that have turned the ball over coupled with the fact that (Defensive Coordinator Dennis) Allen's philosophy of playing defense is to create turnovers. Hopefully that's going to be our calling card that we're going to be able to turn the ball over and create opportunities for our offense to possess the ball and score themselves."

Is it nice working with a defensive coordinator in Dennis Allen, whose background is in the defensive secondary?
"We've got some history together ourselves. We coached together in 1999 at Texas A&M, so I've known D.A. for 10, 11, 12 years, whatever it's been. He's a very good coach and there's a bright, bright future for this man. I'm looking forward to working with him again. It's been a good situation. I'm happy to be back, happy to be with the Broncos, happy to be with an organization that has a history of winning and knowing how to put a good product on the field."
