Pat Shurmur comes to the Denver Broncos with two decades of coaching experience. Most recently, his head coaching gig with the New York Giants, where he went 9-23 in two seasons with a rebuilding team. Although the record shows struggle, Shurmur was known for his run game and big-play expertise. Shurmur’s Giants had more 20-yard plays per game than all but five teams in the NFL.

He also helped running back Saquon Barkley to rookie of the year honors and the pro bowl in 2018. Shurmur also is responsible for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones, who threw for 24 touchdowns and more than 3,000 yards in 13 games. Other noticeable coaching gigs by Shurmur include his offensive coordinator position in Minnesota, where he helped take them to the NFC Championship game and worked as the quarterback coach in Philadelphia with Donovan McNabb under head coach Andy Reid for seven years.

Shurmur comes to Denver with plenty of experience and knowledge that will be valuable for grooming Drew Lock and the young star players of the Denver Broncos. With Shurmur taking the OC job in Denver, it is clear he believes in the Broncos young QB, Drew Lock, and is excited to work with him moving forward. Shurmur is an excellent move by general manager John Elway as he brings a very experienced resume and could be just what the Broncos need to make Drew Lock into a franchise QB.
