The Broncos announced Thursday that they have hired Rams second-line coach and passing coordinator Ejiro Evero as their new defensive coordinator.

Eveiro served as a safety coach for the Rams in the 2017-2020 season, and previously served in the Packers, 49ers, and Pirates coaching staff, all serving as a defensive quality control coach. Eveiro served as a defensive assistant for the 49ers.

In addition, the Broncos announced the hiring of Dwayne Stukes as special services coordinator and Marcus DIxon as defensive line coach.

Stokes has coached the NFL for 14 years and was an assistant for the Rams’ special services team last season. Dixon has coached the Rams’ defensive line for the past two years.

Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett has already decided on the offensive coordinator: Packers longtime colleague Justin Outten.
