Sam Aaron Garnes (born July 12, 1974 in Bronx, New York) is a former professional American football defensive back who currently serves as an assistant secondary coach for the Denver Broncos.

He was selected by the Giants in the 5th round of the 1997 NFL Draft. A native of the Bronx, Garnes is an alum of John Philip Sousa Junior High School located in the Edenwald section of that borough.[1] Garnes currently resides in West Milford, New Jersey.

Sam Garnes enters his fourth season with Denver and fifth year overall in the NFL in 2014. He was hired to his current position as the team’s assistant secondary coach on Jan. 27, 2011.

The Broncos’ secondary in 2013 overcame numerous injuries to its personnel, including extended periods without 12-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey and starting safety Rahim Moore. In their absence, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. became a steadying force on the outside and second-year safety Duke Ihenacho emerged as solid contributor in the defensive backfield.
