    Garth Brooks adds 7 Denver shows in March

    DENVER — It seems Denver loves Garth Brooks. The country star started by announcing earlier this month that he would have two Denver dates on his revival tour for March 20 and 21 — Friday and Saturday shows at the Pepsi Center that were both scheduled for 7 p.m. Considering it will mark the first time he’s been to Denver in 18 years, tickets sold out fast. And so on Friday, Brook’s promoters added seven new shows within an hour. Below are […]

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Two days after parting ways with head coach John Fox, it appeared the Denver Broncos would be losing a second coach on Wednesday, but not necessarily a third. At least not yet. Channel 2 sports director Nick Griffith confirmed through sources that the Oakland Raiders would be hiring Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio to fill their head coaching vacancy. Less than two hours later, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the San Francisco 49ers would promote from within, hiring their […]

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The winds of change are blowing through Dove Valley. And they might blow three coaches out of town before the end of the week. What’s more, all three of those coaches — the top three coaches of the 2014 Denver Broncos — could be named head coaches of three different teams as early as Thursday.

    Elway upset Broncos exited playoffs without ‘kicking and screaming’

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos general manager John Elway struggled to find the words to explain what he called the “lack of fire” he saw in his team’s last two playoff exits. “Two years in a row, it didn’t feel like we went out kicking and screaming,” Elway said during his postseason press conference on Tuesday. That seemed to one big reason why the Broncos and former head coach John Fox came to the mutual decision to part ways one day earlier. The fact that […]
