Entering his 16th season coaching in the NFL, Beake came to Denver after spending two years (2011-12) as an offensive assistant with the Cleveland Browns following a season in that same capacity with the San Francisco 49ers.

He worked with one of the youngest offenses in the NFL from 2011-12, helping develop a quarterback group that included draft choices Colt McCoy and Brandon Weeden.

Beake spent two seasons with Seattle, serving as the Seahawks’ offensive quality control coach in 2008 and offensive assistant/assistant special teams coach in 2009.

From 2004-06, he coached linebackers for the Atlanta Falcons, tutoring All-Pro Keith Brooking, who earned the final two of his five career Pro Bowl selections in 2004 and 2005.

Beake started his NFL career with San Francisco in 1998 as a pro personnel assistant and spent the next five seasons with the 49ers coaching on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.

A graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he played quarterback from 1990-92 and majored in civil engineering, he began his coaching career as a defensive graduate assistant for his alma mater in 1994. He served as a Civil Engineer Officer in the Air Force from 1995-98 while earning his master’s degree in business administration from the University of West Florida in 1997.

Beake’s father, John, was the general manager of the Denver Broncos from 1984-98, part of a 44-year career as a coach or administrator at the high school, college or pro levels. Chris and his wife, Andrea, have a son, Colin, and twin daughters, Madeline and Emile. He was born on Sept. 10, 1972, in Kansas City, Mo.
