The daughter of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen announced her desire to take over the leadership role of the team and was informed she hasn’t met the criteria.
  
The Bowlen Trust issued a statement Thursday that said Beth Bowlen Wallace "is not capable or qualified at this time."
  
The team was placed in a trust when Pat Bowlen stepped down in 2014 because of Alzheimer’s. The trust is overseen by three people, including team president and CEO Joe Ellis, who has final say on day-to-day operations until one of Bowlen’s seven children can succeed him as controlling owner.
  
Bowlen Wallace said in a statement that it is her desire to "lead this team with the same passion my father did and help the Broncos become Super Bowl champions again."
