McDaniels Relieved of Duties

Posted Dec 6, 2010

Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen has relieved Josh McDaniels of his head coaching duties.

UPDATED 9:30 p.m. MST

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- On Monday, Broncos President and CEO Pat Bowlen relieved Josh McDaniels of his head coaching duties.

In 28 games as the head coach of the Broncos, McDaniels accumulated a record of 11-17.

Running Backs Coach Eric Studesville will serve as interim head coach for the remaining four games of the season.

"My decision to relieve Josh McDaniels as head coach was not taken lightly," Bowlen said in a statement. "I will always be appreciative of his passion, enthusiasm and hard work, and I thank him for his efforts. In the end, I was not satisfied with the results and the direction this team was headed. The decision to make a change was extremely difficult but one that needed to be made for this organization and our fans."

Studesville becomes the fourth interim head coach in team history, and the 13th head coach of the Broncos.

In his 14th season in the league, Studesville has been a running backs coach for 10 of them, guiding four individuals to a total of seven 1,000-yard rushing seasons. His running backs have registered 34 individual 100-yard rushing efforts, a total that includes 14 by Willis McGahee, 12 by Tiki Barber and two by Knowshon Moreno.

"I am very appreciative of the trust that Mr. Bowlen and the entire Denver Broncos organization have shown in me," Studesville said in a statement. "Although the circumstances that this opportunity resulted from are unfortunate, I am excited to lead this football team. We have a great group of players and coaches who are committed to finishing the season on a promising note and making our fans proud of this team."

With Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Broncos dropped to 3-9 in 2010 and were eliminated from playoff contention.

"Everyone, myself included, is accountable for our disappointing season and is now responsible for restoring the culture of winning that has been established by this franchise," Bowlen said. "Our entire organization is completely focused on returning to the level of prosperity that our fans expect and deserve from the Denver Broncos."

Broncos Chief Operating Officer Joe Ellis and Coach Studesville will be available to the media on Tuesday at 11 a.m. MST, and it will be streamed live on DenverBroncos.com.

STATEMENT FROM JOSH McDANIELS

Josh McDaniels released the following statement on Monday night:

“I am very grateful to Pat Bowlen and the Broncos’ organization for giving me the opportunity to be the Head Coach of such a proud franchise. I would like to thank all of the people who helped us over the last two years. I am especially appreciative of the efforts of every player, coach and member of the personnel department who worked so hard every day. I wish Pat Bowlen and the Broncos’ organization nothing but the best in the future.”
