John Fox, the new head football coach of the NFL team Denver Broncos, speaks at a news conference where he was introduced at the teams headquarters in Englewood, Colo., on Friday, Jan. 14, 2011.

ENGLEWOOD — John Fox has been introduced as the Denver Broncos’ new coach, their third in little more than two years.

Fox was picked over four other candidates to replace Josh McDaniels, who was fired Dec. 6 amid the Broncos’ worst slide in four decades and the embarrassing Spygate II videotaping scandal.

McDaniels was on the job less than two years after replacing Mike Shanahan in January 2009.

The lost season led to a restructuring of the front office and the return of Hall of Famer John Elway as chief football executive. His first big decision was offering the former Carolina Panthers coach a four-year contract.

Fox went 78-74, including playoffs, in nine seasons with the Panthers. The team didn’t renew his contract following an NFL-worst 2-14 record in 2010.
