Fox expected to become one of the top paid coaches in NFL with new deal.
The Denver Broncos have reportedly agreed to terms on a three-year contract with coach John Fox which puts him among the league’s best paid coaches.
Just last week, John Elway revealed that an extension was “the next thing on the agenda”, and it appears as though he has stuck to his word and will sort out Fox’s long-term future with his current deal only lasting under the end of the upcoming season.
Sources have revealed that the terms are “fair” to both sides, as reported by ESPN, and it will ensure that Fox becomes one of the best paid coaches in the league after making successful strides with the organisation.
Fox is 34-14 in regular-season games with the Broncos, and has picked up three consecutive AFC West titles. He went further and guided them to the Super Bowl last season, but ultimately they were well beaten by the Seattle Seahawks.
As a result, that moved his post-season record to 3-3, however it appears as though the Broncos have the utmost faith in him to ensure that they make an immediate return to the biggest event in the sport and go one step further this time round.
This past season he missed four weeks after undergoing open-heart surgery to replace a valve, but he has insisted that after the procedure he feels “better than I have in 20 years” with his coaching career not under threat.
Fox was keen to avoid talk of an extension last week and insisted that he was purely focusing on coaching the team and getting them prepared for the new season in the coming months.
However, he will undoubtedly be delighted to have been given the opportunity to continue to coach one of the favourites for the Super Bowl again next season, with quarterback Peyton Manning returning to lead the charge.
