John Fox named Denver Broncos head coach, charged with revival

APCarolina Panthers coach John Fox answers questions in a post-game news conference after losing to the Atlanta Falcons, 31-10, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia, on Sunday, January 2, 2011.

The Broncos have hired John Fox, recently of the Carolina Panthers, to be their next head coach.

“I am excited to announce that John Fox has agreed to terms to become the 14th head coach in Broncos history,” John Elway, the team’s executive vice president of football operations, stated via twitter.

“Coach Fox is a great fit for us not only with his coaching ability but also his personality. He is a dynamic and proven leader who will energize our entire organization. John has coached great defenses, turned teams around and been to Super Bowls.”

Most notably, Fox inherited a Panthers’ team that was 1-15 in 2001 and led it to a six-win improvement in his first season of 2002, and the Super Bowl in his second season of 2003.

Fox’s nine-year reign with the Panthers, though, ended with a 2-14 record in 2010, the only team to finish worse than the Broncos’ 4-12 mark.
