Williams College quarterbacks coach KiJuan Ware will serve in the Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship with the Denver Broncos this summer, according to a source.
Ware is entering his second season in his current position at Williams College. He was secondary coach at Eastern Michigan in 2013. Prior to that, he spent two seasons at Western Illinois. He coached running backs his first season before being promoted to offensive coordinator.
The annual fellowship was launched in 1987 and is aimed to create more job opportunities for minority coaches. Each NFL team is encouraged to hire a minimum of four participants, who generally work through the duration of training camp, including all preseason games.
Ware was running backs coach at Miami (Ohio) from 2009-10 and an offensive intern at Notre Dame in 2008. He also coached Georgetown’s wide receivers from 2006-07 and was an assistant at Dartmouth from 2004-05.
Ware got his start in collegiate coaching at his alma mater, Springfield College, from 2002-03.
The Broncos have a new coach in Gary Kubiak, who inherits a team that had a 12-4 record last season and suffered a disappointing loss in the AFC divisional playoffs.
