Former CFL quarterback Logan Kilgore has been hired as the offensive quality control coach of the Denver Broncos, according to a report from Zach Barnett of FootballScoop.
The 32-year-old signed with the Toronto Argonauts in 2015 and appeared in 19 games with the team over two seasons. He threw for 728 yards, two touchdowns, and ten interceptions along with five carries for 23 yards prior to his release in April 2017. He signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats but was cut two months later after appearing in six games.
The six-foot-three, 205-pound passer signed with Edmonton in 2019 and started four contests, throwing for 1,199 yards, six touchdowns, and nine interceptions. His stint with Edmonton is perhaps best remembered for a hit he received from Odell Willis that caused his tongue to bleed.
Kilgore entered the coaching ranks under Butch Jones as an offensive assistant at Arkansas State University during the 2021 NCAA season. He spent this past year as the offensive coordinator at Newman High School where he coached phenom quarterback Arch Manning, the nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning. The 17-year-old was the No. 1-ranked recruit in the country and recently committed to the University of Texas.
The Broncos recently hired Sean Payton as the club’s new head coach following a disappointing 5-12 season. Kilgore will be tasked with helping Russell Wilson get back on track after he threw for 3,524 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions in his first year in the Mile High City.
