Broncos fire Josh McDaniels

By Marc A. Greenberg

The Denver Broncos have fired Head Coach Josh McDaniels, who won his first six games as Broncos coach but only five more in the season-plus that followed.

McDaniels, 34, made famous for trading away Peyton Hillis, Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall in separate deals, and also recently involved in failing to report a subordinate who violated league rules by videotaping a San Francisco 49ers practice in London on Oct. 30., was the youngest in the league at the time of his hiring.

The team, in perhaps a tribute to its young coach, announced the move on its twitter feed.  McDaniels leaves with a record of 11-17, including a 3-9 record this season.
