ENGLEWOOD, Colo. The Denver Broncos have named T.C. McCartney as quarterbacks coach, Head Coach Vic Fangio announced on Wednesday.
A Boulder, Colo., native, McCartney has four years of experience working in the NFL as an offensive assistant/quality control coach with San Francisco (2015, ‘17-18) and Cleveland (2014). In addition, he spent four seasons as a graduate assistant/offensive assistant at Louisiana State University (2011, ’16) and the University of Colorado (2012-13).
During the last two seasons with San Francisco, McCartney assisted Broncos Offensive Coordinator Rich Scangarello and 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan as a member of the offensive staff. Despite being the only NFL team with at least three different quarterbacks starting six or more games from 2017-18, the 49ers ranked 10th in the NFL in passing offense (265.1 ypg) and 20+yard passes (110) during that two-year period.
McCartney was also part of a 49ers coaching staff that helped the team have one of the stronger rushing attacks in the NFL, totaling the fifth-most 10+yard rushes (113) in the league from 2017-18.
McCartney coached as an offensive assistant in 2016 for an LSU team that ranked seventh in country in rushing (256.8 ypg) behind future NFL running backs Leonard Fournette, Derrius Guice and Darrel Williams. He entered the NFL as an offensive quality control coach with Cleveland in 2014 before spending the 2015 season as an offensive assistant with San Francisco.
From 2012-13, McCartney served as an offensive graduate assistant at Colorado under head coaches Jon Embree and Mike MacIntyre, working closely with offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Brian Lindgren.
McCartney, who attended Fairview High School in Boulder, first began coaching in 2011 as a graduate assistant at LSU following his four-year playing career as a quarterback for the Tigers. He is the son of former Colorado quarterback Sal Aunese and the grandson of legendary former Colorado Head Coach Bill McCartney.
T.C. (Timothy Chase) McCartney was born on April 24, 1989.
