Broncos coach Vic Fangio on naming Ed Donatell as the team's defensive coordinator: "Ed's been an integral part of top-10 defenses for six of the last eight seasons in two different places, and he's a great fit to be our defensive coordinator. Having worked very closely with him for a number of years, Ed has a strong understanding of the entire defense from the front end to the back end with the defensive backs being his specialty. He's a very good teacher and believes in the fundamentals in the classroom and on the field. We're thrilled to add Ed to our coaching staff and welcome him back to the Broncos." It is Donatell's third stint with the Broncos — he was the team's secondary coach from 1995-1999 and in 2010.
