John Benton, hired in January as the Broncos’ assistant offensive line coach, was recently granted permission by the team to interview for the 49ers’ top offensive line coaching position. According to the Sporting News on Monday, the sides were finalizing a deal, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.
The move was expected when the Broncos allowed him to interview and, according to an NFL source, Benton has already cleared out his belongings from the team’s facility.
The Broncos will search for a new assistant to work under offensive line coach Jeff Davidson and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, but they don’t have a set timetable or targeted replacement yet.
Northern Colorado announced Monday that its defensive backs coach, Charles Gordon, has joined the Broncos as a defensive quality control assistant.
Gordon, a former NFL defensive back, signed with the Vikings after going undrafted out of Kansas in 2006. He played three seasons under the tutelage of Joe Woods, then the VIkings’ defensive backs coach and now the Broncos’ defensive coordinator.
Gordon joined UNC’s staff in 2013.
