The Denver Broncos and head coach John Fox are parting ways, executive vice president of football operations John Elway announced on Monday.
Fox informed FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer first of the news on Monday afternoon.
Fox, who led the franchise to three consecutive seasons of at least 12 wins, has become the sixth coach fired this offseason.
“While we have made significant progress under Coach Fox, there is still work to be done,” Elway said, via a team-released statement. “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.”
With Peyton Manning non-committal about his future, it seems like an end of an era for this core of players in Denver.
“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,” Fox said. “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.
Fox posted a 46-18 record in four seasons with the Broncos. Before being named the head coach in Denver, Fox had a 73-71 record with the Carolina Panthers.
Fox noted that he’s eager to continue his coaching career and looks forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.
