Civility among coaches returns to the field

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Josh McDaniels promises no pregame trash talking and Norv Turner pledges to shake his counterpart's hand afterward.

Civility among coaches returns.

McDaniels was famously snubbed last week by Kansas City's Todd Haley after the Broncos' blowout of the Chiefs. Haley spurned the traditional post-game handshake and instead wagged an accusing finger at McDaniels before stomping off to the locker room.

Haley apologized a day later.

A year ago, McDaniels found himself embroiled in a controversy for engaging in a verbal spat with San Diego linebacker Shaun Phillips during warmups.

A fired-up Phillips had a huge game that day, and the riled-up Chargers handed the Broncos a 32-3 loss.
