Josh McDaniels, the head coach of Denver Broncos  was fired on Monday December 6th.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen was quoted “My decision to relieve Josh McDaniels as head coach was not taken lightly.  I will always be appreciative of his passion, enthusiasm and hard work…..  I thank him for his efforts.”

Josh first came to the Broncos in 2009 and produced a stellar start with 6 straight wins.

After that, the team slid down to a 3-9 season this year.


Riggo’s Rag comments: The idea of the Broncos firing McDaniels has been hanging around Denver ever since the scandal with taping practices.

The Huffington Post reports: McDaniels started his head coaching career 6-0 in 2009. The Broncos, however, have won just 5 of its 22 games since then.

The players did not have any advanced notice of the firing.

It has been reported that the Broncos will perform a wide and exhaustive search for a new head coach to turn the team around.

In fact, the players found out about McDaniels being fired through Twitter.  The Broncos management decided to make the announcement by tweeting it from the BroncosTwitter social networking page: “Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen has relieved Josh McDaniels of his head coaching duties. Details to follow on”

Eric Studesville, the Broncos Running Backs Coach will be the interim coach for the rest of the season.
