DENVER (AP) _ The Denver Broncos on Monday named LSU offensive line coach Pete Mangurian as tight ends and assistant offensive line coach.
Mangurian has been LSU's offensive line coach for the past four seasons. Before that, he helped coach the offensive line at Stanford, arriving the year Broncos quarterback John Elway was a senior there.
A graduate of LSU, Mangurian also has coached at New Mexico State and Southern Methodist.
The appointment fills one of the vacancies left when Denver offensive coordinator Mike Shanahan was named head coach of the Los Angeles Raiders, and took two assistants with him.
Broncos Coach Dan Reeves said he expects to hire a line coach and a quarterbacks coach by the end of this week, completing his coaching staff.
Mangurian, the third LSU coach to move to the NFL coaching ranks in the past three years, will join former LSU linebacker coach Mike Nolan, now the Broncos' special teams coach, as a member of the Denver staff.
