Fox: Elway knew nothing about running an NFL team in 2011

How John Elway made a successful front-office transition

When Fox received the call that the newly hired Elway wanted to interview him to be Broncos head coach in 2011, he didn’t know what to think. He was advised by some to steer clear. “Did they hire him for his name, or was this some P.R. move?” Fox said. “That’s what some people thought.”

For all of John Elway's laudable traits, none may be more impressive than the humility he's always radiated, especially given the golden boy treatment directed at him his entire life.
