Fox to Interview Monday

Posted Jan 9, 2011

John Fox, the winningest head coach in Carolina Panthers history, is set to interview for the Broncos' vacant head coach position on Monday.

UPDATE: Fox, originally scheduled to interview on Jan. 10, will interview with the team on Jan. 12 after postponing due to inclement weather in North Carolina.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- When he was introduced as Executive Vice President of Football Operations, John Elway said previous head coaching experience was preferable when assessing candidates for the Broncos' next head coach.

On Wednesday, the winningest head coach in Carolina Panthers history is set to interview for the position.

John Fox, who led the Panthers to three playoff appearances, one NFC Championship, two NFC South titles, two NFC Championship games and one Super Bowl, is the fifth confirmed candidate.

He joins Broncos Interim Head Coach Eric Studesville, Giants Defensive Coordinator Perry Fewell, Jaguars Offensive Coordiantor Dirk Koetter and Texans Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison on the list.

In his first eight seasons in Carolina, the Panthers won seven or more games every year, including three seasons with 11-plus wins. His ninth season with the Panthers resulted in a 2-14 season, and his overall record as a head coach stands at 73-71.

In 2002, Fox took over a 1-15 Carolina team. Two seasons later, the Panthers were playing in Super Bowl XXXVIII, and Fox joined Vince Lombardi and Bill Parcells as the only coaches in NFL history to inherit a one-win team and lead it to the playoffs two years later.

Carolina won five playoff games under Fox, including four consecutive on the road, which tied Tom Landry's record as coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Eleven Panthers have made the Pro Bowl under Fox's tutelage.

Prior to coaching in Carolina, Fox served as defensive coordinator for the New York Giants from 1997-2001. With Fox at the defensive helm, the Giants notched 230 sacks, which ranked third in the NFL during that stretch. In addition, New York amassed 153 takeaways, resulting in a plus-25 turnover differential that ranked third in the NFC and fourth in the NFL over the period. His defense helped pave the way to an appearance in Super Bowl XXXV against the Baltimore Ravens by shutting out an offensive-minded Minnesota Vikings team in the NFC Championship game.

His previous coaching experience includes 12 more positions in a 17-year span, which began in 1978 when he was a graduate assistant at San Diego State University.

He has also served as an assistant coach at U.S. International in 1979 and a secondary coach for Boise State (1980), Long Beach State (1981), Utah (1982), Kansas (1983), the Los Angeles Express in the USFL (1985), the Pittsburgh Steelers (1989-91) and the San Diego Chargers (1992-93). His other experience includes the defensive coordinator/secondary coach for the University of Pittsburgh from 1986-88, the defensive coordinator for the Oakland Raiders from 1994-95 and a consultant for the St. Louis Rams in 1996.
