The Bills were linked to Greg Olson, Brad Childress, Norv Turner and Alex Van Pelt in recent weeks but it appears as though they’ve settled on Dennison as their new coordinator.
Dennison, 58, began his NFL coaching career with the Broncos back in 1995 as an offensive assistant. He spent 15 years with the Broncos before he hired by the Texans as their offensive coordinator in 2010.
After four years in Houston, the Ravens hired him as their QBs coach but he later followed Gary Kubiak back to the Broncos and became their offensive coordinator. Denver elected to fire him a few weeks ago and hire Mike McCoy to run their offense.
In 2016, the Broncos’ offense ranked No. 27 in total yards, No. 22 in points scored, No. 27 in rushing yards and No. 21 in passing yards.
