Rick Dennison (born June 22, 1958, Kalispell, Montana) is the offensive coordinator for the NFL's Houston Texans. He previously served in the same capacity with the Denver Broncos between 2006 and 2008, after coaching the team's offensive line from 2001 to 2005, special teams from 1997 to 2000 and working as an offensive assistant from 1995 to 1996. He played eight years as a Broncos linebacker (1982–90). He played college football at Colorado State University, where he played tight end, moving to linebacker when he entered the NFL. During a year off in 1993 for personal reasons, "Denny" assisted Suffield Academy in a successful New England football championship, then returned to Denver to resume coaching for the Broncos. Dennison's move to Houston reunited him with Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, who was a teammate of his in Denver between 1983 and 1990 and a fellow Broncos assistant coach between 1995 and 2005, and who he succeeded as Broncos offensive coordinator in 2006. On January 6, 2013, the Chicago Bears announced that they will interview Dennison for their head coaching position.[1]
