With a press conference coming Friday at noon to announce John Fox as the newest Denver Broncos head coach, contract details have emerged this morning. Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Fox's deal runs for four years and will pay him between $3 million and $3.5 million each season. This is in addition to the millions that the team still owes former coaches Mike Shanahan and Josh McDaniels. The Broncos recently reach a settlement with McDaniels, though details have not been released.
According to Forbes.com, Fox's compensation wouldn't even put him in the top 10 of coach contracts. The New England Patriots' Bill Belichick is the highest-compensated coach at $7.5 million. Mike Shanahan, now the Washington Redskins' head coach, received $7 million a year.
Given the uncertain state of a new collective bargaining agreement between the Players Association and the owners, who knows when we'll see John Fox on the Denver Broncos' sideline?
