BRONCOS AND HEAD COACH JOHN FOX PART WAYS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos and Head Coach John Fox have mutually agreed to part ways, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced on Monday.

Fox coached the Broncos from 2011-14, compiling a 46-18 (.719) regular-season record and a 3-4 (.429) mark in the playoffs. He helped the club to four consecutive AFC West titles and an appearance in Super Bowl XLVIII following the 2013 season.
 
STATEMENT FROM JOHN ELWAY

“John Fox and I met for more than an hour on Monday afternoon to discuss the 2014 season and our goals for the future. During our open and candid conversation, it became clear that it was best for both the Denver Broncos and Coach Fox to move on and make this change.

“On behalf of the Broncos, I sincerely thank John for his many contributions during his four seasons as head coach. He helped establish a positive, winning culture for this team and deserves a lot of credit for the Broncos’ turnaround.

“While we have made significant progress under Coach Fox, there is still work to be done. I believe this change at the head coaching position will be in the best interest of our long-term goal, which from day one has been to win World Championships.

“Our organization is fully dedicated to reaching Pat Bowlen’s high standards for his team as we begin the process of finding the next head coach to lead the Denver Broncos.”
 
STATEMENT FROM JOHN FOX

“I had a productive visit with John Elway this afternoon in which we were both very honest about our time together and how to best move forward. After this discussion, John and I mutually agreed that the timing was right for this decision.

“Although we came up short of our ultimate goal, I am proud of our team’s many accomplishments during these last four years. I truly appreciate all of the hard work put in by every player, coach and staff member within this organization.

“It was an honor to coach the Denver Broncos, a first-class franchise with great fans and a winning tradition. I am thankful to John, Mr. Bowlen and Joe Ellis for allowing me and my family to be part of this team and community.

“I am eager to continue my coaching career and look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.”
