    American football coach

After being fired by the Denver Broncos on Saturday morning, former head coach Vic Fangio released the following statement:

It was an honor and privilege to serve as head coach of the Denver Broncos. I want to think John Elway and Joe Ellis for giving me the opportunity to be part of this storied franchise and special community when they hired me three seasons ago.

Over the past year, I am grateful to have been able to work with George Paton, one of — in my opinion — our league’s best general managers. Broncos fans, you have a great one in George.

To the players, coaches and staff: Thank you for the fight and character you showed each and every week. No matter the adversity, circumstances or challenges we faced, you never backed down. I am proud to be associated with this group of fighters and competitors. I appreciate you all.

To Broncos fans: Thank you for your support, passion and how much you care about the Broncos. You are the reason Denver is one of the NFL’s best football towns.

The foundation is in place for this team to accomplish great things. The future is bright for the Denver Broncos, and I wish the organization nothing but the best.

That’s a classy farewell from Fangio, who will have no trouble finding a job as a defensive coordinator with another team. His time as head coach didn’t pan out the way fans in Denver wanted it to, but Fangio seems to be leaving the club on good terms.
