Broncos hire Toub's assistant to coach special teams

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph filled the last major vacancy on his coaching staff Monday by hiring Brock Olivo as his special teams coordinator.

Olivo, 40, spent the last three seasons as special teams assistant to Dave Toub in Kansas City.

Toub was one of three candidates that interviewed for the Broncos' head coaching vacancy after Gary Kubiak stepped down. Although the job went to Joseph, the Broncos were impressed enough by Toub to hire away Toub's top lieutenant.

Olivo spent four seasons as a key special teams player for the Detroit Lions following his standout career at Missouri, where Toub was the Tigers' strength and conditioning coach.
