GOLD TRIVIA

--
The change in ownership of the Gold from Ron Blanding to Doug Spedding didn't result in a great deal of turnover in the team's front office staff.
--
The coaching staff, however, should have rented their Denver apartments on a month to month basis.   
--
The team not only went through four head coaches in three years, but also changed Offensive Coordinators twice (from Red Miller to Babe Parilli to June Jones), Defensive Coordinators (from Jim Carr to Joe Haering), Defensive Line Coaches (from Charley Armey to Bill Dutton to Pete Rodriguez), and so on.
--
Don Frease was the only member of the Gold coaching staff to survive all three seasons with his employment status intact - and it even changed, as Frease went from the team's Wide Receivers and Tight Ends coach to coaching Special Teams in 1985.
--
Two of team owner Ron Blanding's sons worked in the Gold front office.  Son Andy was a Vice President with the team, while son Mike was an administrative assistant with the club.
