David Russell Logan (born February 2, 1954) is a former American football player, radio personality, and high school coach. Logan played in nine National Football League seasons from 1976 to 1984, primarily for the Cleveland Browns. He has been a major voice on 850 KOA in Denver for over 20 years and the "Voice of the Broncos" for over 15 years. Logan has coached 19 seasons of high school football. His teams have made 17 post season appearances including 6 state championships. Logan is one of only three players, along with Dave Winfield and Mickey McCarty, to be drafted by the NBA, NFL, and MLB.

Player

Dave Logan was an all-stater football player at Wheat Ridge High School. While in high school, he won The Denver Post‍ '​s Gold Helmet Award. An award for the state's top senior football player, scholar and citizen.[1] Out of high school, Logan was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 19th round as a pitcher/infielder.[2]

Logan instead chose to attend the University of Colorado where he lettered in both basketball and football. In 1974, he was selected by Playboy as a Pre-season All-American. In 1975, he was selected by the Sporting News as an All-American.[2] In 1976, he was drafted by the NBA's Kansas City Kings in the ninth round (143rd overall pick) and by the Cleveland Browns in the third round.

Logan played for the Cleveland Browns (1976–83) and the Denver Broncos (1984). As a Cleveland Brown, Logan ranked among the top 5 in "virtually every receiving category in the franchise record books."[3]

Radio personality

After leaving football, Logan began a career in radio. From 1993-2005, he and Scott Hastings hosted "The Zoo" on 850 KOA. Since Hastings' departure, Logan continued to broadcast during the same time period with other radio personalities. From 2005-2011, Dave Logan and Lois Melkonian hosted a show in the same time period called "The Ride Home." In 2011 Lois moved to Houston and the show was renamed the "Dave Logan Show." He was the 1997 Broadcast Citizen of the Year in Colorado, and has won Colorado Sportscaster of the Year three times (1992, '93, and '98).[3]

Dave Logan served as the color analyst for the Denver Broncos for seven years before becoming the "voice of the Broncos" in 1996. He and color commentator Ed McCaffrey former Bronco receiver, currently call the Broncos games on 850 KOA radio.[3]

Coaching

Despite being a full-time radio personality, Dave Logan began coaching high school football in 1993 at Arvada West. He then moved to Chatfield in 2000 and to J. K. Mullen High School in 2003.[1] As of 2012, Logan has taken his teams to the playoffs 17 times and won six state championships in 19 seasons of coaching.[1] Logan is the only person in Colorado Prep history to coach Division 5A championship football teams at four different schools (Arvada West, Chatfield, Mullen, and most recently Cherry Creek in 2014).[3] He is known for donating his coaching salary to his assistant coaches.[1]

On January 11, 2012, Mullen's president and CEO Ryan Clement announced that Logan would no longer be coaching the team because the school wanted a coach "who can be a full-time member of the school community and be engaged in every facet."[1] Days after his firing, Mullen High School self reported various recruiting violations to the Colorado High School Athletic Association.[4] In August 2012, the CSHAA concluded its investigation by placing Mullen on a one-year probation and cleared Dave Logan of any wrongdoing. Mullen officials also indicated the infractions were not related to the firing.[4] Two weeks after being fired from Mullen, Logan was hired to coach football at Mullen's rival Cherry Creek High School, who won the 5A state championship in 2014.
