Joe Ellis comments on Broncos firing Vic Fangio

Jan 9, 2022

Joe Ellis, the Denver Broncos’ president/CEO and de facto owner until the spring, announced that head coach Vic Fangio was fired Sunday morning.

“This morning, George and I informed Vic of the decision to part ways with him as head coach of the Denver Broncos,” Ellis is in a statement released by the team.

“For the last three seasons, Vic put his heart and soul into coaching the Broncos. I want to thank Coach Fangio for giving his maximum effort to our organization since the day he was hired.

“George will have full authority to select the next head coach of the Broncos. This is his decision and his program. I have complete confidence in George’s ability to lead an exhaustive and successful head coaching search.

“We will give George every available resource and fully support him in hiring the very best head coach to lead the Broncos.”

Ellis’ contract is set to expire later this year and the team is expected to be sold. So it makes sense that Paton will be in charge of the team’s coaching decisions given that Ellis appears to be on the way out in Denver.
