Here is what Fox had to say about his hiring by the Broncos earlier today. I have made no bones about the fact that of the realistic cadidates that Fox was what the Broncos need right now - stability, experience, or, as Fox put it yesterday, a coach whose been to the rodeo before.
"I am very thankful to Pat Bowlen and John Elway for giving me the opportunity to coach a football team with such a proud tradition. The Broncos have a culture of winning, and I am excited to continue that legacy. I can’t wait to get to work, pushing our players to be the best they can be and representing this community as head coach of the Broncos."
No learning curve, no figuring out what it takes to be a Head Coach, John Fox can hit the ground running, right from the start, and for the Broncos, right now, that is extremely important.
