Rodgers, Gase Join Staff

Posted Jan 20, 2011

On Thursday, the Broncos announced Jeff Rodgers will serve as special teams coordinator in 2011, while Adam Gase will stay with the team as quarterbacks coach.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Head Coach John Fox added to his coaching staff on Thursday when the Broncos announced Jeff Rodgers will join the team as special teams coordinator and Adam Gase will serve as quarterbacks coach.

Rodgers comes to Denver after serving in the same position under Fox in Carolina last season. Gase coached the Broncos' wide receivers the past two seasons, guiding Brandon Lloyd to his first Pro Bowl selection in 2010.

Rodgers joined the Panthers in 2009 as the team's special teams and strength and conditioning assistant before earning the promotion. Before arriving in Carolina, he spent one season as the special teams coach at Kansas State and five seasons working with San Francisco's special teams unit.

Under Rodgers, Carolina's special teams unit showed double-digit improvement in its league rankings last season for several categories, including kick return average and opponent's kick return and punt return average. The Panthers ranked sixth in the NFL in opponent average starting field position after a kickoff in 2010.

Kicker John Kasay finished tied for 10th in the NFL in field goals made, connecting on 25-of-29 field goal attempts.

At Kansas State, Rodgers helped the Wildcats lead the country in blocked kicks, blocked punts and kickoff coverage. The team also returned five punts for touchdowns that season.

Rodgers -- whose older brother, Jay, will serve as a Broncos defensive quality control coach in 2011 -- began his NFL coaching career working with San Francisco's special teams unit. With the 49ers, he helped punter Andy Lee and long snapper Brian Jennings earn Pro Bowl berths.

Gase returns to coaching quarterbacks, a role he filled with the Lions in 2007.

As receivers coach in Denver, Gase helped produce a Pro Bowler in each of his first two seasons.

In 2010, Lloyd led the league in receiving yards, setting new single-season career bests in catches (77), yards (1,448) and touchdowns (11) to earn his first trip to Hawaii for the game.

In Gase's first season with the Broncos, Brandon Marshall earned a Pro Bowl berth when he posted his third consecutive 100-catch season and set a career-high with 10 touchdowns. The receiver also set a league single-game record for receptions in a game when he caught 21 passes at Indianapolis on Dec. 13, 2009.

In addition, Jabar Gaffney, a nine-year veteran, posted his two highest single-season yardage totals in his two seasons working with Gase.

Before joining the Broncos, Gase logged four seasons as an offensive assistant in stints with Detroit and San Francisco.

In Gase's season as quarterbacks coach in Detroit, Jon Kitna posted the third-highest single season passing total in franchise history.

The pair join Mike McCoy (Offensive Coordinator), Clancy Barone (Tight Ends), Brian Callahan (Offensive Quality Control), 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.
