Denver Broncos part ways with DBs coach Ron Milus

Three days after one of the most egregious secondary breakdowns in NFL playoff history, the Denver Broncos have a new defensive backs coach.

The Denver Post reported Tuesday that the Broncos opted not to renew Ron Milus' contract and hired Cory Undlin as his replacement.

The move comes on the heels of Jacoby Jones' 70-yard touchdown in the final minute of regulation of the Broncos' double-overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday. The play featured huge breakdowns by both Broncos cornerback Tony Carter and safety Rahim Moore, who allowed Jones to get behind him for the tying score.

"This wasn't about one play or one game," Fox said Tuesday of the coaching change. "It was about the best fit for our secondary and defense as we moved forward."

The Post reported the decision to move on from Milus was in the works well before Saturday's events. Milus had clashed with Broncos defensive backs over the past two seasons, according to The Post.

Undlin spent last season as the Broncos' quality control defensive assistant and was the Jacksonville Jaguars' defensive backs coach under Jack Del Rio from 2010 to 2011.
