ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have fired coach Josh McDaniels. There was no immediate word on who will succeed McDaniels.
Team spokesman Patrick Smyth told The Associated Press: "We can confirm that coach Josh McDaniels has been relieved of his head coaching duties." After going 6-0 to start his rookie season last year, McDaniels went 5-17 and was involved in a series of personnel mistakes. His record with the Broncos was 11 wins, and 17 losses. He was caught up in what's been called Spygate II a week and a half ago and was fined $50,000 by the NFL for not reporting an employee who had taped a San Francisco 49ers walk-through in October. McDaniels had fired the employee and said he did not watch the video tape, but he didn't report the incident to the NFL. The Broncos lost that game, which was played in London.
