The Denver Broncos have announced that John Fox is the new coach of the franchise.

Terms of his contact weren’t revealed, but Fox beat out Houston Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, who were in the final three.

Fox interviewed with the Broncos and John Elway on Wednesday after his flight out of North Carolina was delayed three times this week by winter weather.

The Broncos are coming off a franchise-worst 4-12 season.

Fox’s contract wasn’t renewed by the Panthers following an NFL-worst 2-14 season. He was the fifth candidate the Broncos have interviewed to replace Josh McDaniels, who was fired Dec. 6 amid the team’s worst slide in four decades and the embarrassing Spygate II videotaping scandal.

Fox, 55, spent the last nine seasons as Carolina’s coach, going 73-71 and winning five of eight games in three trips to the playoffs. The Panthers were coming off a 1-15 season when he took over in 2002 and led them to a 7-9 mark in his first year before guiding them to the Super Bowl in his second season.

Information from The Associated Press and ESPN.com’s John Clayton was used in this report.
