Jason La Canfora joins our “NFL Monday QB” analysts to discuss head coach John Fox parting ways with the Denver Broncos and what this means for their future.
The problem for Fox was that despite some good regular seasons teams went 3-4 in the postseason, including a 2-3 playoff record with Manning.
The mantra inside the team’s Dove Valley headquarters all season was Super Bowl or bust, and Sunday’s loss was enough to convince Elway he needed to make a sweeping change.
Fox’s coaching staff remains under contract. But Elway informed the assistants, including coordinators Jack Del Rio and Adam Gase, they are free to pursue jobs elsewhere because the new head coach will be allowed to hire his own staff.
“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,” Elway said in a statement. “Our organization is fully dedicated to reaching (owner) Pat Bowlen’s high standards for his team as we begin the process of finding the next head coach to lead the Denver Broncos.”
