Broncos Keep Asst. Coach Keith Burns
By Mike Klis
The Denver Post

Make that four Broncos assistants under former coach Mike Shanahan who have been retained on the staff of new coach Josh McDaniels.

Keith Burns will be coming back as the Broncos' assistant special teams coach.

He joins Rick Dennison (offensive line), Bobby Turner (running backs) and Rich Tuten (strength and conditioning) as holdovers.

Burns was a Broncos special teams standout for most of his NFL playing career before retiring following the 2007 season and beginning work as an assistant coach with the team.

He will be retained as an assistant under new special teams coordinator Mike Priefer, who was hired by McDaniels after spending the past three years with Kansas City.

I could also put Niko Koutouvides in that group, but I'd say it's unlikely he'll be back next season.

I always did like Burns though, so don't take my above quote the wrong way.
