A legend for Broncos Country who helped our team find relevance passed away today

Mike Klis broke sad news today of a Bronco great passing. Former Denver Broncos head coach Red Miller passed away due to complications from a stroke. He was to turn 90 in October.

Sadly he won’t be in body as the Broncos add him to their Ring of Fame in Week 11 as they host the Cincinnati Bengals.

He was a hell of a coach who brought fire to the team as Denver finally made a splash on the national scene as a powerhouse behind the mighty Orange Crush defense in the late 1970’s.

Broncos Country gives you a big ole mile high salute, Red. You are already missed.
