John Elway has just announced via his Twitter account that John Fox has been named the newest head coach of the Denver Broncos.Fewell, it seems may have been used by teams to fulfill Rooney Rule requirements. Too bad for those teams. They are missing out on a a good man.
In a string of Tweets Elway stated,
“[Fox] 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. We couldn’t be more excited to have him lead the Denver Broncos.”
Fox is 73-71 (.503%) all time with a 5-3 (.625%) record in the post-season, he has been a head coach exclusively with the Carolina Panthers.
Coach Fox is a member of the Chuck Noll coaching tree; Fox has served under Noll, Bobby Ross, Art Shell, Mike White, Rich Brooks and Jim Fassel. Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio served as a coordinator for Fox in Carolina.
Good for the Giants, though.... Fewell will someday get his chance, but for right now he'll be back at TIMEX
