They were; however, first in rushing with 164.4 yards, led by LeSean McCoy.

This will be only the third-time that he worked for a team outside of the Denver Broncos. Those other teams are the Baltimore Ravens and the Houston Texans.

Prior to agreeing to become the new Bills offensive coordinator, he spent the past two seasons as the Denver Broncos offensive coordinator under former head coach Gary Kubiak. He worked as the Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach in 2014.

He was the Houston Texans offensive coordinator from 2010 through 2013, also under Kubiak. Before going to the Texans, he was the Broncos offensive line coach in 2009.

Dennison was the Broncos offensive coordinator from 2006 to 1008. He also was the Broncos offensive line coach from 2001 to 2005. He spent 1997 to 2000 as the Broncos special teams coach.

He began his coaching career in 1995 and 1996 as a Broncos offensive assistant.

Dennison — who played for the Broncos from 1982 to 1990 — is a three-time Super Bowl champion. He’s also coached on six AFC Championship teams.
