In their effort to make the long climb from their current state — arguably their lowest point in franchise history — back to their once Super Bowl-contending past, the Denver Broncos have called on the guy who has done it before.
The Broncos hired John Fox, recently of the Carolina Panthers, to be their next head coach. He signed a four-year contract.
"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."
