The Broncos fired secondary coach Ron Milus and promoted Cory Undlin to the position.

“Cory Undlin is an experienced defensive backs coach who has great familiarity with that role as well as our players and concepts,” said head coach John Fox. “He has coached the position with multiple NFL teams, including under Jack Del Rio with the Jaguars. I am confident he will be a great fit and get the most out of our secondary.”

“I appreciate all of Ron Milus’ hard work and wish him the best,” he added.

Undlin was the Broncos’ defensive quality control coach in 2012. He spent the previous three seasons with current Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio in Jacksonville, where he coached the defensive backs in 2010-11 and linebackers in 2009. Undlin has also spent time with the Browns and Patriots.

Milus just completed his second season of a second stint with the Broncos. He was the defensive backs coach from 2000-03 and became the secondary coach again in January 2011. Milus has also spent time in his coaching career with the Panthers, Rams, Giants, Cardinals and Broncos.

The Broncos finished third in the league in pass defense in 2012, but gave up 331 yards passing in Sunday’s divisional-round loss to the Ravens.
