Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has been in Los Angeles working on his throwing mechanics with new UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone.
Mazzone and his son, Taylor, have been working out with Tebow twice a day for a couple of hours at a time since last weekend, Noel Mazzone said Wednesday, hoping to improve upon Tebow’s heavily-scrutinized passing ability
“He just came out here to throw and work on a few things and see if we can just become a little more efficient in what he’s doing,” Noel Mazzone said, noting that the sessions will last through the weekend and maybe longer. “Throwing motion, footwork, everything I work on with all my quarterbacks.”
NFL teams are limited in the amount of practice time they are allowed with players during the offseason, but there is nothing preventing players from working with non-affiliated coaches. Mazzone said the Broncos are aware that he is working with Tebow and that he regularly communicates with Broncos quarterbacks coach Adam Gase.
“Obviously I wouldn’t do anything that would go against what their beliefs are,” Mazzone said. “I know after coaching quarterbacks for a long time, they’re like girlfriends. You don’t like other guys messing with them.”
