Official News: Broncos Coach Just Accused Of…

n Tuesday, the Denver Broncos announced that the team will be sold this year. Shortly thereafter, the Broncos were rocked by an incendiary allegation by former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores.

Flores filed a class-action lawsuit against the NFL in Federal Court on Tuesday, naming three clubs — the New York Giants, Dolphins, and Broncos — and alleging discrimination during two different head-coach hiring cycles (2019 and 2021). The complaint also accuses Miami owner Steven Ross of offering Flores $100,000 per game to tank in 2019 and alleges the billionaire violated NFL tampering rules.

Nathaniel Hackett’s disappointing season in Denver has come to an end.

The Broncos fired the first-year head coach on Monday, according to a statement from team owner and CEO Greg Penner.

“Following extensive conversations with (general manager) George (Paton) and our ownership group, we determined a new direction would ultimately be in the best interest of the Broncos,” Penner said in a statement. “This change was made now out of respect for everyone involved and allows us to immediately begin the search for a new head coach.

“We recognize and appreciate this organization’s championship history, and we understand we have not met that standard.”

In his place, the Broncos have appointed senior assistant Jerry Rosburg as the team’s interim coach for the final two games of the season, a person with knowledge of the move confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke under the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Two weeks into the 2022 season, Hackett had hired Rosburg out of retirement to assist with Denver’s game clock and game management situations. Rosburg has two decades of coaching experience in the NFL and had been one of the trusted assistants for John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens.
