Fangio went 19-30 in three seasons leading the Broncos. The team is looking for its fifth head coach in nine seasons.
“Former Thank you George Paton,” Mecklenburg said in a Facebook post. “This streak of losing seasons is unacceptable in Broncos Country. I remember when a Bronco head coach was fired because they were unable to win a Super Bowl, even though he lead the franchise to 3 of them. I remember when a Bronco “head coach for life” was fired even though he had won 2 Super Bowls. I was in my second year on the team when Pat Bowlen bought the Denver Broncos. Instead of coming in and cleaning house, Pat got to know the organization and it’s culture. When he had determined who the positive leaders in the organization were, he built our culture around us. He was clear and consistent in the Broncos Cornerstones: we were going to win championships and we were going to serve Broncos Country.
“Without an owner to be accountable to, you are the acting leader of the Broncos now. Firing the head coach after 3 losing seasons puts everyone on notice that losing is not acceptable under your leadership. Those cornerstones Pat brought to this organization are as relevant in 2022 as they were in 1984. The Denver Broncos exist to win championships and to serve Broncos Country. Thanks again for being clear in your support of our cornerstones with this decision. Your consistency of supporting these cornerstones will determine the Broncos success in the next decade. Broncos Country is pulling for you.”
Broncos GM George Paton is in his first season in the role. He will have to make a big decision on the future of the team.
The Broncos — a once proud organization— has missed the playoffs for the last six seasons. Since winning the Super Bowl at the end of the 2015 season, the team has gone 39-58 in the last six seasons.Follow Us on Social Media:
