Beth Bowlen Wants to Control Broncos, Said Not Qualified
By Tylor Walden
Pat Bowlen’s second oldest child, Beth Bowlen, has expressed interest in owning the Denver Broncos. Beth is not qualified at this time.
The Denver Broncos have been without an owner since Pat Bowlen was forced to step down before the start of the 2014 season. His battle with Alzheimer’s disease forced him to relinquish control of the Broncos.
The Pat Bowlen Trust has controlled the team since, with the hopes they can find someone that can run the show. Preferably, they would like someone within the family to do so. Beth Bowlen Wallace was looking to become the new owner of the Denver Broncos.
The second oldest child of Pat Bowlen expressed her interest in becoming the owner of her father’s franchise. The Pat Bowlen Trust contacted Beth to say she was “not capable or qualified at this time.”
Here is the full statement below made today by The Pat Bowlen Trust and CEO Joe Ellis.
There statement brings light into the subject. Pat Bowlen would not just hand over his team to his children, despite Beth’s interest. He would like to see their accomplishments, qualifications, and their character. If the trust believes those three objectives are within the high standards of Pat Bowlen, then that individual can assume the duties.
I agree with the trust in regards to Beth Bowlen Wallace’s interest in owning the team. The team must be very careful in whom they allow to take over for this proud franchise.

This is a process that takes time and patience. Pat Bowlen put a lot of his heart and soul into the Denver Broncos. I understand to the fullest why he would not just hand over the team after all the hard work he put into it.
Maybe down the line a new owner will surface. But for now, it stays in the Pat Bowlen Trust’s court.
