ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP/CBS4) — John Fox has agreed to a new three-year contract with the Denver Broncos.
“We are pleased to reach this agreement with John Fox, who has played a key role in the success and improvement of the Broncos during the last three seasons,” Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway said in a prepared statement. “While our team has made progress each year under Coach Fox, we both understand that there is still work to be done for us to reach our ultimate goal.Having continuity at the head coaching position is critical in building a championship team, and John Fox is an important part of our foundation as we move forward.”
Fox has gone 37-17 with three AFC West titles in his three seasons in Denver.
He overcame a heart operation in November to lead the Broncos to an appearance in the Super Bowl, where they lost 43-8 to Seattle.
“I want to thank John Elway and the Broncos organization for the trust they have shown in me with this agreement,” Fox said in a prepared statement. “I’m proud of what our teams have accomplished, but our expectations are much greater as we pursue the Super Bowl championship that our fans deserve. It’s a privilege to coach the Broncos, and I am fully committed to the continuous improvement of our football team.”
