Broncos filling out coaching staff

ENGLEWOOD — Denver Broncos coach John Fox has brought two more assistants over from Carolina: secondary coach Ron Milus and linebackers coach Richard Smith.

Both were on Fox’s staff with the Panthers the last two seasons and both have worked for the Broncos before.

The Broncos hired Dennis Allen late Monday night to fix the league’s worst defense. Allen, who was New Orleans’ secondary coach the past five seasons, is the Broncos’ sixth defensive coordinator in the last six years.

Man fired for wearing Packers tie

OAK LAWN, Ill. — A car salesman in suburban Chicago has been fired for refusing to remove a Green Bay Packers tie that he wore to work the day after the Packers beat the Chicago Bears to advance to the Super Bowl.

John Stone says he wore the Packers tie to work Monday at Webb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn to honor his late grandmother, who was a big Green Bay fan.

The gesture did not impress his boss, Jerry Roberts.

Roberts says the dealership has done promotions involving the Bears and he was afraid the tie could alienate the team’s fans and make it harder to sell cars.
