Broncos hire Matt Russell as college scouting boss

ENGLEWOOD ” The Denver Broncos have hired Matt Russell as their college scouting director.

Russell, a first-team All American and Butkis Award winner as the nation’s best linebacker at the University of Colorado in 1996, spent the last three seasons as a scout for the Philadelphia Eagles following four seasons of scouting for the New England Patriots.

After a stellar career at Colorado from 1993-96, Russell was selected by the Detroit Lions in the fourth round of the 1997 draft. Knee injuries forced him to retire in 2000.

He spent the 2000 season as a graduate assistant coach at Colorado before beginning his scouting career.
