For some reason NFL.com keeps mentioning that Fox got fired after that atrocity of a season in 2010.

Denver Broncos' John Fox quiet on Carolina Panthers





If John Fox were built a little differently, this week would have a potential for ugliness.


Schein: Broncos. More ...
The Denver Broncos coach on Sunday returns to the house of his former employer, the Carolina Panthers, who fired Fox in 2010 after nine seasons with the team.
Fox has spent this week artfully dodging questions of revenge.
"It's the most important game, because it's the next one," Fox told The Denver Post. "You don't get but 16 of these opportunities. Right now we're 5-3, and the only guarantee we have is 5-11. So, you know, it will be just like any week from the standpoint of it's the Denver Broncos against the Carolina Panthers at their place. That's the only real thing I know."
Asked if he'd stick to the heavy coach-speak until kickoff, Fox confirmed as much: "Yes, put that in a quote and you'll hear it many times."


also mentioned in the slides on the game page

Well I can go in detail about how Fox thinks being mum about the situation is going to fool people and babbling incoherently like a low price Yogi Berra impersonator for hire, but instead I'll clarify for NFL.com. Fox was never fired after 2010, his contract expired and he was just simply allowed to walk. But he should definitely have been fired no later than an hour after that garbage display of football Panther fans witnessed against Arizona at home in the playoffs.

I think "fired" has a better ring to it.

Don't worry. Once Manning retires in 2 years, Denver fans are going to be glad weed is legal, bc Fox will be drafting 6th round QBs and trying to "develop" them for 20 years.

I thought the huddle pinned all the draft picks on the GM. I wish we could get some consistency around here.

not fox's m.o.

find an old mature QB and ride him till he breaks and then ride him a few more years.

fox doesn't want anything to do with devloping players, esp. QB.

he tried with brett basanez and matt moore, no? unfortunately, he will probably pick up mike glennon and have him train under manning, and in the end fox won't look that bad to denver fans. god, i hate the man.

he did everything he could to put off getting moore on the field....in '07 and '09.

and basenz never had a chance. i doubt that fox really had any intention of doing anything with him.

saw this a while back....

Shortly after Fox’s hire, Hurney was promoted to general manager, which meant he had final say over all personnel decisions, although he regularly downplayed his importance by insisting all moves were a collaborative team effort between he, Fox and the heads of the pro and college scouting departments.

Everyone agreed the best plan was to begin building around a solid defense and a power running game, which meant some radical changes compared to the philosophy Seifert had installed.
There was also a new emphasis placed on building through the draft rather than going out and buying free agents, as was so often the case in the Seifert era.

That theory applied to most positions, but curiously enough not the most important one of the field — quarterback. At the time, neither Fox nor Hurney placed a high emphasis on finding a young quarterback in the draft. In fact, in Fox’s nine years at the helm, the Panthers never selected a quarterback in the first three rounds of the draft.

The theory behind it was drafting a young quarterback was often a waste of time since it took so long to develop them and, by the time they were fit for duty, their contracts were generally up.

The Panthers felt they could get by with a “system quarterback,” a player who could simply manage the offense and play mistake-free and not be relied on to throw for 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns.
