Who will replace Fox in Denver?
DENVER, CO (The Spread) – The Denver Broncos made a surprising move on Monday night, parting ways with head coach John Fox. Who will be the one to replace Fox as coach of the Broncos?
After bowing out of the playoffs in a 24-13 loss to the Colts at home. It was the second time in three years that the Broncos have lost their first playoff game. Yesterday, it was announced that the Broncos and Fox mutually agreed to part ways. John Elway spoke to the media on Tuesday and said the two disagreed on how to take the next step. Fox was 46-18 in his four years with Denver, reaching the playoffs in all four season.
When it comes to Fox’s replacement, the oddsmakers from Bovada.lv have Gary Kubiak as the favorite with 3/2 odds. Other candidates in their eyes are Adam Gase (4/1), Dan Quinn (4/1), Mike Shanahan (5/1), Jack Del Rio (6/1) and Todd Bowles (9/1).
Kubiak is the current offensive coordinator in Baltimore, but is a former Broncos player as assistant during Denver’s two Super Bowls. Gase is the current OC for enver and has been with the team since 2009. Gase has a very good relationship with Peyton Manning, which could play a big role in the hiring process.
Shanahan is an interesting option, as he was the coach of the Broncos from 1995-2008 and is obviously very close to Elway, whom he won two Super Bowls with during his first coaching stint with the team. Shanahan last coached the Redskins from 2010-13.
