“It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Head Coach of the Denver Broncos. I want more than John Elway and Joe Ellis for giving me the opportunity to be part of this special community and multi-storey franchise when they hired me three seasons ago.
“Over the past year, I am grateful to have been able to work with George Paton, one of – in my opinion – the best General Managers of our league. Broncos fans, you have a great thing in George.
