The Broncos have fired quarterbacks coach T.C. McCartney, according to a source who confirmed the report by KOA Radio.
McCartney, a native of Boulder and the grandson of former Colorado coach Bill McCartney, was the only coach with ties to former offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello. Scangarello was fired Sunday by coach Vic Fangio, who hired Pat Shurmur on Tuesday.
McCartney previously worked for Cleveland and San Francisco (he worked with Scangarello on the 49ers) in the NFL and LSU and Colorado in college.
During the 2019 season, McCartney earned praise from Scangarello for his work with rookie quarterback Drew Lock during his stay on injured reserve. Lock went 4-1 as the Broncos’ starter at season’s end.
