Olivo, 40, said he’s ready to excel with the Broncos as a first-time coordinator. Broncos head coach Vance Joseph grilled him during a six-hour interview to determine if he was the right fit to end an exhaustive search to find the right special teams coordinator.
The key, Olivo says, is to focus on how players learn rather than how coaches teach. He has a favorite acronym: “K.I.L.L. it.” It’s startling at first, but fits perfectly with his high-energy approach and projected coaching style. It stands for “Keep It Likeable and Learnable.”
