Aaron Wilson

The Broncos officially announced that executive vice president of football operations John Elway has received a three-year extension with the organization.

Elway will also add the general manager tag to his job title.

Since Elway stepped into the Broncos' front office in 2011, the Broncos have gone 37-11 in the regular season. This included a run to the Super Bowl this past season.

“I am grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given with the Broncos,” Elway said in a statement. “Our goal is to continue building on the culture of winning established by Pat Bowlen, and we remain relentlessly committed to delivering a World Championship to our fans.”

Said Broncos team president Joe Ellis: “Our organization is extremely pleased with the work John Elway has done in his three years since rejoining the Broncos,” Ellis said. “He has demonstrated great vision and leadership in his role, assembling a championship-caliber team and positioning it for sustained success.

“We are very confident in the direction of the Broncos with John Elway leading our football operations.”
