John Elway has just tweeted that John Fox has agreed to become the Denver Broncos' 14th head coach.

No terms of the deal are available at this time, but it seemed pretty obvious after his interview that Fox would be offered the job.

Through Twitter, Elway had this to say about Fox:

"Coach Fox is a great fit for us not only with his coaching ability but also with his personality.

"He is a dynamic and proven leader who will energize our entire organization.

"John has coached great defenses, turned teams around and been to Super Bowls."

Well, there you have it, folks: Denver has a solid coach. It will be interesting to see how Fox deals with Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow.
