John "Chip" Beake (born May 27, 1969 in Kansas City, Missouri) is an American football coach. Most recently, he served as wide receivers coach for the Amsterdam Admirals in NFL Europe.

Coaching career[edit]

His experience with coaching began when he was still young, with his father, John, who worked for the Denver Broncos for 22 years, including as general manager from 1985-1998, and who is now NFL Europa's Managing Director of Operations. Chip Beake himself also gained experience on the college level with Colorado School of Mines, McPherson College in Kansas, the University of Kentucky and Oklahoma State.

Beak's was already active in Europe in 1995 when the football league was still called the World League of American Football (WLAF). He spent five seasons (1995-2000) as an assistant coach, co-defensive coordinator, secondary coach and special teams coach with the Barcelona Dragons (where he met his wife), winning a World Bowl ring in 1997. During his time in NFL Europa, Beake spent his off-seasons working with NFL teams during training camp, gaining experience on both offensive and defensive sides of the ball. He helped prepare the Dallas Cowboys in 1997-1998, the Green Bay Packers in 1999 and the Tennessee Titans, as an intern, in 2000.

After this, Beake moved on to become an offensive assistant and quality control coach with the New Orleans Saints from 2001 to 2005. Here he was responsible for breaking down player footage and assisting with game preparation.

In 2006, he spent the NFL season serving as offensive quality control coach for the Denver Broncos, marking his sixth year working in the NFL.
