The Denver Broncos have agreed to mutually part ways with head coach John Fox, the team announced on Monday. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports first reported the news.

Fox met with Broncos general manager and vice president of football operations John Elway on Monday afternoon, when the decision was made.

Before Denver’s playoff game on Sunday, Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported that there was a “pretty good chance” Fox would be available if the team lost. The Broncos went on to lose 24-13 at home to the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round of the playoffs.

According to NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington, Elway informed Denver’s entire coaching staff that they have permission to look elsewhere, and that the new head coach will decide whether to retain them or not.

Fox has been Denver’s head coach since 2011, leading the team to a 46-18 record in four seasons. The Broncos made it to the playoffs each year, reaching Super Bowl XLVIII last season and being eliminated in the divisional round the other three years.

Fox previously served as head coach of the Carolina Panthers from 2002 to 2010.
