In a phone interview with Fanhouse.com, Pat Bowlen said that he was set on keeping Josh McDaniels around for the 2011 season.
“I am not interested in making a change,” Bowlen said. “I’m very happy with Josh. Josh is doing a good job. I wish he had a few more wins, but we’ve got five games to go. I’ve got 27 years in this business. The ball bounces funny and it doesn’t always bounce your way. We’ve had bad breaks, injuries. I’ve been around football long enough to know this happens and it’s a part of the game. We’ve still got a chance to make the playoffs. People have been in a position like ours and it’s been done before.” – FanHouse.com
How quickly that report was retracted after Bowlen released a statement on Monday night.
“Josh McDaniels is the head coach of the Broncos, and you always strive for stability at that position. However, with five games left in the 2010 season, we will continue to monitor the progress of the team and evaluate what’s in the best interest of this franchise.” – DenverPost.com
The Broncos owner, who tends to keep out of the public eye, is keeping his options open depending on what happens with the five remaining games in the 2010 season.
