Denver Broncos hire ex-safety Renaldo Hill to coach defensive backs

The Denver Broncos have hired former NFL safety Renaldo Hill as their new defensive backs coach, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis.  Hill will replace Greg Williams, who coached Denver’s defensive backs in 2018.

Williams followed ex-Broncos coach Vance Joseph to the Arizona Cardinals. Joseph is the new defensive coordinator in Arizona and Williams has been hired as the Cardinals’ new defensive backs coach.

Hill, 40, entered the league with the Miami Dolphins as a seventh-round pick out of Michigan State in the 2001 NFL draft. After spending the first four years of his career in Miami, Hill spent one season with the Oakland Raiders in 2005.

Hill then returned to the Dolphins for three more seasons before signing with the Broncos in 2009. He was a two-year starter in Denver, recording 122 tackles and four interceptions in 31 games. He was released by the Broncos in 2011 and retired with 596 career tackles and 19 interceptions.

Hill coached for two years at the University of Wyoming from 2012-2013 before joining the University of Pittsburgh as a defensive backs coach. After three years at Pitt, Hill served as an assistant defensive backs coach with the Miami Dolphins in 2018.

Hill will now coach under new defensive coordinator Ed Donatell, who coached Hill as the Broncos’ DBs coach from 2009-2010.
