Cory Undlin enters his second season with the Denver Broncos in 2013 and his first as the club’s secondary coach. A veteran of nine NFL seasons and 15 years overall, he was named to his current position on Jan. 15, 2013.

Before coming to Denver, Undlin, 42, spent three seasons with Jacksonville under current Broncos Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio, coaching the club’s defensive backs for two years and spending another season as a defensive assistant working with the defensive line and outside linebackers.

He also coached four seasons in Cleveland (2005-08) and one year with New England (2004), working primarily with the secondary in both stops.

With the Broncos in 2012, he was part of a defensive staff that helped the league’s No. 2 unit finish with a balanced ranking of third against both the pass and the rush. The defense produced Pro Bowlers at each level, as cornerback Champ Bailey, defensive end Elvis Dumervil and linebacker Von Miller were selected to represent the AFC.

Denver finished the 2012 regular season as the only NFL team that didn’t allow a 300-yard passer in addition to limiting opponents to a league-low 30.6-percent third-down conversion rate.

While coaching the Jaguars’ secondary in 2011, Jacksonville’s defense allowed just two individual 300-yard passers to tie for the fourth fewest in the NFL in addition to surrendering only 43 pass plays of 20+yards (T-2nd in NFL).

Undlin coached four seasons with the Browns beginning with the 2005 campaign and worked his way from defensive quality coach his first two years to secondary/assistant special teams coach in 2007 and defensive backs coach in 2008.

The Browns finished second in the league with 23 interceptions in 2008, led by cornerback Brandon McDonald, who tied for fourth in the AFC with five interceptions as a 15-game starter for the club.   

He worked with the secondary as a defensive coaching assistant with New England during the 2004 campaign in which the Patriots finished the regular season 14-2 and went on to win Super Bowl XXXIX.

Undlin began his coaching career at his alma mater, California Lutheran University, where he coached linebackers from 1998-99 before being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2000. From 2002-03 he served as a graduate assistant at Fresno State University working with the school’s secondary.

A defensive back for California Lutheran from 1990-94, Undlin earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the school. He and his wife, Amy, have a son (Caden) and two daughters (Brooke and Taylor). He was born on June 29, 1971, in St. Cloud, Minn.
