Broncos defensive line coach Wayne Nunnely retired on Monday after 36 years of coaching.

“It has been an absolute dream come true for me to coach for 36 years," Nunnely said in a statement on the team’s website. "I am so thankful for all the opportunities I have been given to have a positive impact on others through the game of football. More than anything, I am proud of the accomplishments of the teams and players I have been so privileged to work with over the years."

Nunnely had been the Broncos’ D-line coach the past three seasons after holding the same position with the Chargers (1997-2008) and Saints (1995-96)

“Wayne has been an outstanding teacher and mentor for so many players and coaches throughout his career," head coach John Fox said. "His passion for the game is something that I greatly admire, and it’s one of the many reasons why he was so valued and respected as a coach. Although I only had the opportunity to work with Wayne for one season, it was a pleasure to watch him coach. His positive influence on the defensive line was an important part of our team’s success."

Jay Rodgers, who has been a defensive assistant with the Broncos the past three seasons, will take over as the team’s defensive line coach.

“I’m excited for this opportunity,” Rodgers said. “I am extremely grateful to Coach Nunnely for all I’ve learned from him over the past three seasons.”
