BRONCOS AGREE TO TERMS ON NEW THREE-YEAR CONTRACT FOR HEAD COACH JOHN FOX

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— The Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with Head Coach John Fox on a new three-year contract through the 2016 season, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced Saturday.

“We are pleased to reach this agreement with John Fox, who has played a key role in the success and improvement of the Broncos during the last three seasons,” Elway said. “While our team has made progress each year under Coach Fox, we both understand that there is still work to be done for us to reach our ultimate goal.

“Having continuity at the head coaching position is critical in building a championship team, and John Fox is an important part of our foundation as we move forward.”

The Broncos have totaled the third-most wins (37-17, .685) in the NFL in three seasons under Fox, who has become only the fifth head coach in NFL history to win a division title in each of his first three years with a team. Denver’s three consecutive AFC West titles represent the longest streak in club history, and the Broncos are joined by Green Bay and New England as the only NFL clubs to win their division every season since 2011.

“I want to thank John Elway and the Broncos organization for the trust they have shown in me with this agreement,” Fox said. “I’m proud of what our teams have accomplished, but our expectations are much greater as we pursue the Super Bowl championship that our fans deserve.

“It’s a privilege to coach the Broncos, and I am fully committed to the continuous improvement of our football team.”

Fox has led Denver to consecutive 13-3 regular-season records and AFC No. 1 seeds during the last two years while helping the Broncos post the best overall win percentage (.778, 28-8) in the NFL. He coached Denver to Super Bowl XLVIII in 2013 to become just the sixth head coach in league history to lead two different clubs to the Super Bowl.

Entering his 26th year coaching in the NFL and 13th season as a head coach, Fox’s 115 overall wins (115-91, .558) rank fifth in the NFL among active head coaches and 33rd in league history. He spent his first nine seasons as a head coach with Carolina (2002-10), compiling a 73-71 (.507) record while helping the Panthers to an appearance in Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2003.

Named the 14th head coach of the Broncos on Jan. 13, 2011, Fox inherited a 4-12 team and helped it to an AFC West title and Wild Card playoff victory that year. He finished third in the Associated Press’ NFL Coach of the Year voting following the season in recognition of his efforts.
