Denver Broncos fire Josh McDaniels

In a surprise by only the timing of it move, the Denver Broncos have fired head coach Josh McDaniels. Many expected the move to come at some point, but it coming right now was rather surprising. It will be interesting what will happen to the Denver Broncos. McDaniels joins Brad Childress and Wade Phillips as coaches to be fired during the 2010 season.

McDaniels was at the center of various personnel mishaps that have seemingly doomed the Broncos for the long term. Trading away Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall. Signing players to big contracts in free agency to have them cut before the season. Running Mike Nolan, who changed the Denver defense to something respectable, out of town. Trading a first round pick for a player who would be later traded for a late round pick, trading Peyton Hillis for Brady Quinn, drafting Tim Tebow in the first round, and alienating himself within the organization. Many didn't expect McDaniels to be the coach in 2011, anyway.
