John Fox took over the Denver Broncos in 2011, and since then, the Broncos have won three straight division titles.

Fox is a solid coach and leader, and probably his best asset to the Broncos is his history in the league and ability to put together a great staff.

Now, the Broncos will talk about extending coach Fox, who has one year left on his original contract with the team.

“I want to get him done,” Elway said Friday at the combine. “I’m going to sit down with his agent while I’m here, sit down with him and see where we come out.”

This isn’t the most riveting of news, as you’d simply expect great teams to keep continuity at the head coaching position. Obviously John Elway and John Fox work together, and this deal will more than likely get done at some point, but it could be worse.

At least the Broncos didn’t try (or reportedly try) to trade their head coach to the Cleveland Browns.

Cohesion between the head coach and general manager is not something to take for granted, so keeping Elway and Fox around is a key move for the Broncos, who also extended Jack Del Rio this offseason.
