Just a bit over two weeks after the 2012 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos have decided to part ways with general manager Brian Xanders.
Per the Denver Post:
“John [Elway] and I had a lengthy conversation today and we mutually decided to part ways for the best interest of my career aspirations,”’’ Xanders said. “I appreciated everything that Pat Bowlen has done for the Broncos and for bringing me here in 2008. It was great working with Coach John Fox. I’m telling you, he’s a great coach to work with. And it was great working with John Elway.”
Brian Xanders joined the Broncos with former coach Josh McDaniels after fourteen years with the Atlanta Falcons.
In his four years with the Broncos, Xanders’ role was a bit of a mystery to the fans. After the firing of Josh McDaniels, Xanders claimed that McDaniels had the final say and made all of the decisions. When Elway took control of the Broncos front office it was widely accepted that he had a strong hand in the Broncos war room. The Broncos also promoted scout Matt Russell to the Director of College Scouting.
What do you think Bronco fans? Will Elway take over the General Manager responsibilites, promote Matt Russell again, or even bring someone from the outside?
