ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have named Chris Kuper as their assistant offensive line coach, Head Coach Vic Fangio announced Tuesday.
Kuper, a former Broncos fifth-round pick who played eight seasons at guard, has spent the previous three years on the Miami Dolphins' coaching staff.
Kuper spent 2016 as a quality control coach before being promoted to an assistant offensive line coach in 2017.
The Dolphins' had the NFL's largest increase in rushing yards before contact in 2018, and their overall rushing game improved by almost 25 yards per game in the span of the year. Working with Kuper, left tackle Laremy Tunsil allowed one sack in 2018 after giving up six in 2017.
In Denver, Kuper will assist Offensive Line Coach Mike Munchak, with whom the Broncos agreed to terms last week.
As a player, Kuper started 79 of the 90 games he played in Denver. He was a three-time captain and spent his entire playing career with the Broncos.
