Marcus Dixon, the defensive line coach for the Broncos the previous two seasons, is reportedly leaving the organization to take a position as defensive line coach with the Minnesota Vikings, according to ESPN’s Dan Graziano. 9NEWS The claim has been verified by Denver’s Mike Klis, and the Broncos will now search for a defensive line and defensive backs coach.

Marcus Dixon first became a member of the team in 2022 after moving to the Denver Broncos from the Los Angeles Rams in pursuit of Ejiro Evero. For one season, Evero oversaw the defense for the Broncos, while for the previous two seasons, Dixon oversaw the defensive line. Last season, the Broncos prevented Dixon from following Evero to the Panthers; this season, they’re letting him go.

The Broncos have let go of two young defensive coaches in as many weeks. This one is the second. Dixon will now work with Brian Flores’s staff in Minnesota after Christian Parker, the defensive back coach for the last three seasons, left to work with Vic Fangio’s team in Philadelphia.

For their defensive staff, the Broncos will now be searching for two important positions coaches. The defensive backs for the Broncos, including Pat Surtain, Ja’Quan McMillian, P.J. Locke, Caden Sterns, and others, have been attributed to Parker’s development. Regarding the defensive line, the group still required assistance. The Broncos’ poor run defense performance from the previous season was a clear indication of their lack of talent. Moving forward, the person replacing Dixon will have to contribute to the growth and improvement of the Broncos’ interior defensive line players.

Keep checking back to find out who the Broncos will bring in to take Christian Parker and Marcus Dixon’s places, as well as how that will affect the team going forward.
