Alex Gibbs (born February 22, 1941) is a former NFL offensive line coach and former assistant NFL head coach. He currently serves as an offensive line consultant for the American football team the Denver Broncos. Gibbs is a well known proponent of the Zone Blocking scheme and popularized its use while he was Offensive line coach of the Denver Broncos.[1] Denver became famous at that time for its use of smaller, more agile offensive linemen and the success of its running backs, most notably Terrell Davis.[2] Gibbs was to enter his first season on Pete Carroll's Seattle Seahawks staff as the Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Line coach in 2010,[3] but announced his unexpected retirement a week before the start of the NFL's 2010 regular season.[1][4] In May 2013 he returned to the Denver Broncos in a consultant role for one year.[5][6]
