ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Elway is looking for his fourth head coach in six seasons after firing Vance Joseph for presiding over the Denver Broncos' worst two-year stretch since the late 1960s.
Elway acknowledged being part of the problem in the Broncos' 20-28 record since their Super Bowl 50 parade, including 11-21 under Joseph.
"The first guy I look at is the guy in the mirror," Elway said Monday. "And I'm just as responsible for this, if not more, than anybody else because it's my job to make sure that we win more football games. And so I take full responsibility for that."
It was Joseph who took the fall, however, fired with two years and $6 million left on his contract.
"Vance is a good man. He worked his tail off," Elway said. "And unfortunately, we didn't get it done. We didn't win enough football games and ultimately that's what we have to do."
Elway almost fired Joseph last year after a 5-11 debacle but gave him a second chance. He got no similar reprieve after going 6-10.
"It's disappointing not being able to finish what we started, but I'm incredibly proud of the players and coaches for how they fought and worked every week," Joseph said in a statement. "I also appreciate the support staffs who put in countless hours behind the scenes helping our team. This is a special place with great fans."
The Broncos immediately sought permission to interview Steelers offensive line coach and former Titans head coach Mike Munchak, Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and Patriots defensive coordinator Brian Flores, among others.
"I will continue to do the best I can, knowing we're going to try to win football games. We're going to compete for world championships," Elway said. "That's what I'm about. I hate to lose. I hate it more now than I ever have. And we're going to do everything we can to get us back on track ... and get us back to completing for world championships."
Elway said the franchise's winningest coach, Mike Shanahan, whom he considered re-hiring a year ago, isn't in the mix this time around. Nor is former Broncos assistant Adam Gase, who was fired by Miami.
Elway indicated that Gary Kubiak, his senior personnel adviser, might move back onto the field as an offensive assistant for the new coach. Kubiak stepped down two years ago over health concerns 11 months after leading the franchise to its third Super Bowl victory.
Elway insisted the Broncos' opening is just as attractive today as it was then, when Joseph called the opportunity the best in football because it required a reboot and not a rebuild.
Yet the Broncos didn't innovate as quickly as other teams that incorporated more of their prospects' college DNA into their playbooks, like the AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs with Patrick Mahomes and the Baltimore Ravens with Lamar Jackson.
"I think we just haven't evolved here," star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. "I think after the Super Bowl we kind of just got stagnant. We haven't evolved. We've got to figure out how we can evolve on offense, defense, special teams and everything, get better as players. We have to evolve with the times of the NFL. We're behind right now."
The Broncos are mired in a three-year playoff drought. They lack a franchise quarterback like the ones the Packers, Browns and Jets have in place to help them lure their next head coach. They haven't had a title sponsor for their stadium for several seasons. And they need a massive makeover to modernize a jalopy of an offense.
Team president Joe Ellis insisted there was ownership stability even as a family feud has gone public with Pat Bowlen's children haggling over the future of the franchise while their father, who has Alzheimer's, comes up for a possible Hall of Fame election Feb. 2.
Then there's Elway, a hands-on, high-standard GM with a Hall of Fame gold jacket who has little patience for losing, tried to hire Shanahan a year ago and didn't cut Joseph any slack after trading away perennial Pro Bowlers Aqib Talib and Demaryius Thomas.
"Vance was on board with every decision that we made. It wasn't one where I was going off and saying, 'We're doing this,'" Elway said. "The decisions that were made were joint decisions, so we'll leave it at that."
With journeyman Case Keenum at quarterback, the Broncos' top selling point from a player perspective is probably the league's top pass-rushing duo of Von Miller and Bradley Chubb, who combined for 26½ sacks.
"I'd like to think that I'm a coach's dream," Miller said. "We've got a lot of big-time players here. We've got Bradley Chubb, who's coming into his second year. Denver's a great city. Denver's a great place to come coach. It's a great franchise to be a part of, known for winning and all types of wonderful stuff.
"So, I think the Denver Broncos organization will be the main attraction for the next head coach."
Elway concurred, suggesting, "People may disagree, but we're not that far off."

Lincoln - Nebraska's Leigha Brown was named the Big Ten Women's Basketball Freshman of the Week when the conference announced its weekly honors on Monday, Jan. 7.

Brown put together the best two performances of her young career in back-to-back Big Ten road games for the Huskers last week. She averaged 19.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 steals in 18.0 minutes per game off the bench for the Big Red.

The 6-1 guard/forward, who leads all Big Ten freshmen in scoring in conference contests at 16.7 points per game, scored a then-career-high 19 points in Nebraska's 78-69 road win at defending Big Ten champion Ohio State on New Year's Eve. Brown hit 4-of-9 shots from the field, including a pair of three-pointers against the Buckeyes, while also knocking down 9-of-12 free throws to lead the Huskers to their first true road win of the season.

The true freshman from Auburn, Indiana was even better the next time out at No. 19 Iowa, putting up a career-high 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting from the field, while connecting on 3-of-4 three-point attempts. Brown also hit 5-of-6 free throws and tied a career high with two steals in 18 minutes against the Hawkeyes. She scored six of her points in the closing minutes to lead a furious Husker rally that cut a 12-point Iowa lead with four minutes left to just two points in the final minute.

On the season, Brown is Nebraska's second-leading scorer at 10.4 points per game, trailing only fellow freshman Sam Haiby (10.7 ppg). Brown ranks seventh among all Big Ten freshman in scoring on the season.

Brown and the Huskers will play host to No. 9 Maryland on Tuesday night at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Tip-off between Nebraska (7-7 overall, 2-1 Big Ten) and the Terrapins (13-1 overall, 2-1 Big Ten) is set for 7 p.m., and tickets are available now at Huskers.com.

Nebraska Head Coach Scott Frost announced Wednesday that Ron Brown has joined the Cornhusker football staff as Director of Player Development. Brown has 24 previous years of coaching experience at Nebraska, serving as an assistant coach from 1987 to 2003, and again from 2008 to 2014. Brown served as associate head coach at Liberty University for the past three seasons, working for Head Coach Turner Gill. In his new role at Nebraska, Brown will serve in a non-coaching role, mentoring Husker football student-athletes in numerous off-field development areas. Brown will work closely with Nebraska’s nationally renowned Life Skills program and assist in community outreach efforts of Husker football players and staff. “Coach Brown had a tremendous impact on me during my playing career at Nebraska, and I am sure he will have a similar impact on many young men in our football program in the years ahead,” Frost said. “Coach Brown understands Nebraska and what makes this a great place for student-athletes to grow and learn in all areas.” Brown will bring 31 years of college coaching experience to the Nebraska football staff. Brown coached for four seasons at his alma mater, Brown University, before his 24 seasons at Nebraska and the past three years at Liberty. In addition to outstanding team success that included three national championships at Nebraska, Brown coached more than 40 academic all-conference players and nearly 40 players that went on to professional careers. Brown coached the Nebraska tight ends (2008-10) and running backs (2011-14) during his most recent stint with the Huskers. During that time, he tutored future NFL running backs Rex Burkhead and Ameer Abdullah, who rank second and sixth, respectively, on NU’s all-time rushing list. Burkhead earned first-team Academic All-America honors in both 2011 and 2012, while Abdullah was a Doak Walker Award finalist as a senior in 2014. Abdullah left Nebraska as the school’s No. 2 all-time rusher and all-time leader in all-purpose yards. During his time as an assistant from 1987 to 2003, Brown coached the Nebraska wide receivers and tight ends. Brown’s players had a reputation for their tenacity and downfield blocking, helping Nebraska to nine NCAA rushing crowns in 17 seasons. Brown spent four years from 2004 to 2007 as the Nebraska State Director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. A native of New York, Brown earned his bachelor’s degree from Brown in 1979, and a master’s degree from Columbia in 1982.





Ron Brown on Sports Nightly

Nebraska wrestling greats Jordan Burroughs and James Green headline the field for Final X Lincoln, which will be held this Saturday night at 6 p.m. at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. Four men's freestyle weight classes and three women's weight classes will be contested, with the winners earning a spot on Team USA for the 2018 UWW Freestyle World Championships. Final X Lincoln is one of three events to determine the United States World Team, as other weight classes will be contested on June 16 in State College, Pennsylvania, and June 23 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

 

In addition to Burroughs (74 kg/163 pounds), an Olympic gold medalist and four-time World champion, and Green (70 kg/154 pounds), a two-time World medalist, World and Olympic Gold Medalist Kyle Snyder (97 kg/214 pounds) and World Silver Medalist Thomas Gilman (57 kg/126 pounds) will also be wrestling to retain their spots on the men's World Team, as will World Silver Medalist Alli Ragan (59 kg/130 pounds) and World Bronze Medalist Becka Leathers (55 kg/121 pounds) in the women's competition. Burroughs will be looking to represent the United States at the premier international competition (Olympics or World Championships) for the eighth year in a row. He is the reigning world champion at 74 kg, and is tied for second in U.S. history with five total World or Olympic titles. A two-time national champion and three-time All-American at Nebraska, Burroughs continues lives in Lincoln and train at the Nebraska Wrestling Training Center under NU Head Coach Mark Manning and Associate Head Coach Bryan Snyder. His opponent at Final X will be Isaiah Martinez, who won the World Team Trials Challenge Tournament. Martinez, a four-time NCAA finalist and two-time NCAA champion, will be looking to make his first senior world team. The matchup between Burroughs and Martinez will be the final bout on the card. Green, a two-time world medalist, will be looking to make his fourth-consecutive U.S. world team. He was the silver medalist at the 2017 World Championships, and also owns a bronze medal from the 2015 World Championships. Green also continues to live in Lincoln and train at the NWTC after wrapping up a career as a four-time All-American at Nebraska in 2015. He will face Jason Chamberlain, who spent three years training at the NWTC. Chamberlain, who is currently an assistant coach at Fresno State, won the World Team Trials Challenge Tournament. Green’s matchup against Chamberlain will be the first bout of the evening. Gilman will face Daton Fix and Snyder will take on Kyven Gadson in the other men's matches at Final X Lincoln. Leathers will face Jacarra Winchester, Ragan will take on Jenna Burkert and Tamyra Stock will wrestle Randyll Beltz (68 kg/150 pounds) in the women's matchups. Each matchup will be a best-of-three series, and the order of bouts will be the same for the first round and the second round of competition. If any weight classes are forced to a deciding third match in their series, the bouts in round three will stay in order, with a minimum waiting time of 30 minutes from the end of bout two. The bout schedule is below. The 2018 UWW World Championships will take place Oct. 20-28 in Budapest, Hungary. Tickets for Final X Lincoln are on sale now at Huskers.com/tickets. FloWrestling will provide exclusive live and on-demand coverage of the three-event Final X series to subscribers.
