Wade Phillips on coaching staff details

Posted Dec 11, 2013

Interim head coach Wade Phllips spoke Monday about some details and changes that are taking place on the coaching staff.

Interim head coach Wade Phillips spoke after Wednesday's practice about a few changes on the coaching staff.

Defensive backs coach Vance Joseph will call the plays on defense. But Phillips will continue to have an input on the defensive play-calling. The interim head coach explained one of Joseph's strengths.

"He's very detailed," Phillips said about Joseph. "The players will know what they're supposed to do."

Joseph has coached the secondary since 2011, and while this will be the first time he's actually called the plays, Phillips said Joseph's always been involved.

"He always has input," Phillips said. "All of them have input, certainly. He’s going to call the same things I’m going to call overall. Again, I can override anything."

Phillips also discussed how the offensive play calls will be made, since former head coach Gary Kubiak had a major role in that area. Quarterbacks coach Karl Dorrell is a factor, too.

"The play-calling will go Rick, through Karl," Phillips said. "Karl will also have some input as far as more of the passing game than the running game. Of course, Karl’s in constant communication with the quarterback when the quarterback’s out of the game and obviously when he’s in the game, really."

Dennison reiterated what Phillips said about the collective effort involved in calling plays.

"That's the way it's always been," Dennison said. "We work as a staff on gameday.

Dorrell is the coach who relays plays via radio headset to the quarterbacks.

Phillips also said offensive assistant Dan Hammerschmidt will move from the booth to the sidelines.
