BRONCOS AGREE TO TERMS WITH REGGIE HERRING AS LINEBACKERS COACH; NAME CLANCY BARONE OFFENSIVE LINE COACH

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Monday agreed to terms with Reggie Herring to be their linebackers coach and named Clancy Barone their offensive line coach, it was announced.

Herring, a 34-year coaching veteran with nine seasons of experience in the NFL ranks, previously coached linebackers with Houston (2002-03, ’11-13), Dallas (2008-10) and Chicago (2014).

Before instructing linebackers with the Bears in 2014, Herring coached the unit under Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak in Houston from 2011-13.

In 2011, Herring’s linebacker group accounted for 27 of the team’s 44 sacks as the Texans ranked second in the NFL in total defense (285.7 ypg). Linebacker Brian Cushing earned second-team All-Pro honors from the Associated Press in 2011, and Connor Barwin transitioned from defensive end to outside linebacker and finished third in the AFC with 11.5 sacks.

Broncos defensive end DeMarcus Ware played outside linebacker under Herring from 2008-10 with the Cowboys and ranked first in the NFL with 46.5 sacks during that span. Ware led the NFL in sacks twice (2008, ’10) under Herring, including a career-best 20 quarterback takedowns in 2008.

Herring, who began his NFL career as linebackers coach for the Texans from 2002-03, also owns 25 years of coaching experience at the collegiate level. He served as defensive coordinator and linebackers coach for the University of Arkansas from 2005-07 following coaching stops at North Carolina State (2004), Clemson (1994-2001), Texas Christian (1992-93), Auburn (1986-91) and Oklahoma State (1981-85).  

A three-year starter at linebacker for Florida State from 1978-80, Herring was born on July 3, 1959, in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Barone enters his seventh season with the Broncos in 2015 and returns to coach the offensive line, a group he previously worked with for the club in 2010.

A 28-year coaching veteran, Barone spent five seasons (2009, ’11-14) instructing tight ends for the Broncos after coaching that position for the San Diego Chargers (2007-08) and Atlanta Falcons (2005-06) in his previous two NFL stops.

Barone spent his first 17 years working with offensive lines at the collegiate level before beginning his NFL coaching career with the Falcons in 2004 as their assistant offensive line coach.
