The Jets have hired former Broncos wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni as their new wide receivers coach, per Mike Klis of 9NEWS in Denver.

Azzanni spent five years coaching wide receivers in Denver, including last season under former Broncos head coach and new Jets offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett. He also coached wide receivers in Chicago in 2017.

Azzanni has helped in the development of receivers such as Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick.

Azzanni fills the void left behind after the Jets moved on from wide receivers coach Miles Austin, who was suspended by the NFL for violating the league’s policy on gambling for coaches.

Broncos Wire editor Jon Heath had this to say about Azzanni: “I think he must have been doing something right because he lasted through three different coaching staffs (Vance Joseph 2018), Vic Fangio (2019-2021) and Nathaniel Hackett (2022). I think the Broncos would have liked to keep him under Sean Payton, too, he’s just getting a fresh start elsewhere and reuniting with Nathaniel Hackett now.

He helped Tim Patrick develop into a key player on offense, but Courtland Sutton has been a little underwhelming, and Jerry Jeudy was very underwhelming until this year. Much of the blame for that likely falls on poor QB play, though.”
