ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Jim Bob Cooter has been hired as quarterbacks coach for the Detroit Lions.

Detroit officially announced the move Monday. Cooter was an offensive assistant for the staff that led Denver to an AFC championship last season. He had previously worked for the Kansas City Chiefs and Indianapolis Colts.

Detroit has been putting together a new staff under Jim Caldwell, who replaced fired coach Jim Schwartz.

With Cooter on the staff, the Broncos ranked first last season in total offensive yards per game (465.3), total touchdowns (76) and points per game (37.9). Cooter was on Caldwell’s staff in Indianapolis when the Colts reached the 2010 Super Bowl.
