Lock will have a new offensive coordinator in 2020 after the Broncos officially appointed former Giants head coach Pat Shurmur to the position Tuesday.

Shurmur's scheme averaged 4.5 plays of 20 or more yards per game over two seasons in New York, good for sixth in the league, per Patrick Smyth, Denver's Executive Vice President of Public and Community Relations. Despite having the aging Eli Manning under center in 2018 and then rookie Daniel Jones at quarterback for New York in 2019, Shurmur has developed a reputation as a play caller capable of making defenses uncomfortable downfield. That style seems to suit Lock's big arm and gunslinger mentality. Additionally, given his two unsuccessful stints as an NFL head coach, Shurmur seems unlikely to jump ship for another organization any time soon, giving the Broncos some stability around their young signal-caller.
