Broncos Hire John Fox

John Fox has agreed to terms to become the 14th head coach of the Denver Broncos. Executive Vice-President of Football Operations John Elway announced.

"I am very thankful to (Owner and CEO) Pat Bowlen and John Elway for giving me the opportunity to coach a football team with such a proud tradition," Fox said in a statement released by the team. "The Broncos have a culture of winning, and I am excited to continue that legacy.

"I can't wait to get to work, pushing our players to be the best they can be and representing this community as head coach of the Denver Broncos."

Fox spent the previous eight seasons with the Panthers, taking over a 1-15 team in 2002 and leading them to a 73-71 record. The Panthers went to the playoffs three times during Fox's tenure, twice advancing to the NFC Championship, which they won at the end of the 2003 season, Fox's second with the team.

The Panthers opted not to renew Fox's contract after a 2-14 season in 2010.

"Coach Fox is a great fit for us not only with his coaching ability but also with his personality -- he's a dynamic and proven leader," Elway said. "He's coached great defenses, turned teams around and been to Super Bowls. We couldn't be more excited to have him lead our football team."
