First, Thanks to Ted for getting this up while I was spending some quality time with my daughters. Secondly, MHR Radio will be LIVE tonight at 9PM est / 7PM mst to talk about this. BE THERE! -- TSG
In a move which has sent shockwaves throughout the NFL, the Broncos have dismissed Mike Shanahan as Head Coach after 14 years and 2 Super Bowl wins. Owner Pat Bowlen's statement follows.
After giving this careful consideration, I have concluded that a change in our football operations is in the best interests of the Denver Broncos. This is certainly a difficult decision, but one that I feel must be made and which will ultimately be in the best interests of all concerned. I appreciate the 21 years that Mike Shanahan has given to the organization as an assistant and head coach, and the two Super Bowl wins in that time. His contributions hold a special place in Broncos history.
I'm sure everybody is as shocked as I am, and also needs to collect their thoughts. Guru will have thoughts later, and I am sure everybody will have a lot to say after some time for reflection.
