Nick Ferguson gushes with praise for new member of Broncos’ coaching staff

The Denver Broncos have a new special teams coordinator in Ben Kotwica, who will work alongside new assistant head coach Mike Westhoff.

Former safety Nick Ferguson played under Westhoff with the New York Jets from 2001-2002, and he has made it clear on Twitter that he believes Westhoff was the perfect hire for Denver. Ferguson has said the Broncos’ special teams units will now be like a pack of wolves playing for the “GOAT” of special teams coaches.

Ferguson has tweeted that Westhoff demands perfection and settling for less “isn’t in his vocabulary.” He now expects the veteran coach to elevate a part of Denver’s game that has been incredibly poor in recent seasons.

When reports emerged earlier this month that the Broncos were considering asking Westhoff to come out of retirement, Ferguson quickly endorsed the coach.

Westhoff coached special teams with the Colts (1982-1984), Dolphins (1986-2000), Jets (2001-2012) and Saints (2017-2018). He overlapped with Ferguson in New York and coached under Sean Payton in New Orleans.

Ferguson played professional football from 1996-2009. In addition to playing for six NFL teams, Ferguson also spent time in NFL Europe and in the CFL. He played for the Broncos from 2003-2007 and he now works in sports radio in Denver.
