The Denver Broncos have hired Mitch Tanney as director of football analytics. It's a new position where he'll be responsible for analyzing data to support evaluations and situational decisions made by the scouting department and coaching staff. Tanney had a similar job with the Chicago Bears for the past two years. Before that, Tanney served as manager of football products and sports analytics for STATS LLC, a leading sports technology, data and content company. Working primarily with NFL and college football programs, he managed the company’s ICE platform, a system that aligns a team’s analytical data and player records to scouting video. A former quarterback at Monmouth College, Tanney was named the 2005 Midwest Conference Offensive Player of the Year as a senior in addition to finishing as runner-up for Division III National Player of the Year. From 2006-09, Tanney worked as an assistant coach at Monmouth while continuing his playing career in various professional football leagues (AFL, AF2, IFL, Swedish SuperSeries).
