Ron Milus coached the secondary in Denver from 2000-03 and again from 2011-12. (photo: Associated Press) ESPN’s Adam Schefter has just reported that the Denver Broncos have fired defensive backs coach Ron Milus. This release comes after an extraordinarily bad showing in last weekend’s divisional game at home against the Baltimore Ravens. Milus was in the second season of his second time on the Broncos’ coaching staff, he originally coached Denver’s defensive backs from 2000-03 and came back to the Broncos under head coach John Fox. Since he returned to Denver Milus’s defensive backfield has employed a healthy mixture of young and old, featuring future Hall of Famers Brian Dawkins and Champ Bailey, as well as the superb undrafted corner Chris Harris, Jr., undrafted Tony Carter and second year safeties Rahim Moore and Quinton Carter. Milus was in his thirteenth season as a coach in the NFL he has previously coached for the Carolina Panthers, St. Louis Rams, New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals. Denver had a total of 16 interceptions for 347 yards and five touchdowns in 2012.
