Gazette Premium Content John Fox to coach Broncos from sidelines vs. Titans

ENGLEWOOD — John Fox will coach the Denver Broncos from the sideline and not the booth upon his return Sunday five weeks after heart surgery.

Fox said he wrestled with the pros and cons of both scenarios.

The booth allows a better view of the game and he would have had direct communication with all his coordinators. Being down on the field allows him to get a better feel for the mood of his team and he can look his players in the eye.

Withstanding two days of practice in temperatures around zero degrees this week helped convince Fox and his doctors that he'd be able to handle Sunday's forecast of snow and temperatures in the teens when the Broncos (10-2) host the Tennessee Titans (5-7).
