ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has fined the Denver Broncos and coach Josh McDaniels $50,000 each because the team's video operations director broke league rules by filming a San Francisco 49ers practice in London last month.
The NFL investigation determined that Steve Scarnecchia took the six-minute video of the walkthrough and presented it that day to McDaniels. The coach declined to view it.
But the NFL fined both the coach and team because the matter was not reported, as required by league policy.
Scarnecchia was fired by the Broncos. Goodell has notified him that as a repeat violator of league rules regarding integrity, he will have a hearing to determine if he is banned from the NFL.
