PRO Rugby has announced that Denver Barbarians head coach Pete Borlase has been named as assistant on the Denver entry into the competition. He'll join head coach Sean O'Leary and another assistant coach to be named later. Word on the street has it that the other name will be a familiar one from the Denver area. With the announcement of Borlase the competition only has a few more coaching announcements to go. Players are expected to be announced soon. 

Here is the announcement from PRO Rugby:
