We didn’t have this on our NFL offseason bingo card.
Scangarello, 51, served as the Denver Broncos’ offensive coordinator in 2019. He was fired by then-head coach Vic Fangio after one season.
Some Broncos fans are convinced Drew Lock’s development would have taken a different path if Scangarello returned in 2020. After completing 64.1% of his passes and going 4-1 as a starter in 2019, Lock’s completion percentage dropped to 57.3% and he went 4-9 as a starter in 2020 with Pat Shurmur calling plays.
After being fired by the Broncos, Scangarello was a senior offensive assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2020 before being hired by the San Francisco 49ers as a quarterbacks coach in 2021. Scangarello then served as OC and QBs coach for one season at Kentucky before being fired.
Now a coaching free agent, Scangarello is helping Williams prepare for the NFL draft. The Broncos do not pick until No. 12 so barring a trade, Williams seems unlikely to land in Denver this spring.
