Broncos hire ex-Giants coach Pat Shurmur as play-caller

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio hired former New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur as his offensive coordinator on Tuesday.

Shurmur becomes the Broncos' fifth offensive play-caller in five seasons and inherits an attack that features youngsters Drew Lock, Dalton Risner, Noah Fant, Courtland Sutton and Phillip Lindsay but also needs a major makeover to challenge Kansas City's supremacy in the AFC West.

Shurmur replaces Rich Scangarello, who struggled in his first season as an NFL play-caller in 2019 although the Broncos (7-9) won games behind three different starting quarterbacks, including the rookie Lock, who went 4-1 down the stretch.
