from www.espn.com:

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos hired John Fox on Thursday, hoping he’s the right coach to turn around the downtrodden team.

Fox beat out four other candidates to replace Josh McDaniels, who was fired Dec. 6 amid the Broncos’ worst slide in four decades and the embarrassing Spygate II videotaping scandal.

The 55-year-old former Carolina Panthers coach will be introduced by the Broncos at a news conference Friday.

The Carolina Panthers were (2-14) with John Fox as their head coach in 2010 and Fox was in Charlotte, as the Panthers head coach, for nine seasons and he took the team to the playoffs, three our of nine years and the team made one Super Bowl appearance and that was a tight loss to the New England Patriots, on a last-minute field goal……

    Hey..I’m one of the biggest Fox bashers around!! Thought they have done a TERRIBLE job on offense the last 3 years. But, I am glad he got another job & at least we’ll see how much of it was coaching & how much of it is ownership & GM…..it will be interesting to see if Fox rehires the staff he had in Carolina.

    Denver fans..as I’ve said for years now, get used to the following..1st & 10, off tackle run, gain of 3. 2nd & 7, draw play loss of 2..3rd & 9, throw it 4. PUNT!!
