Fox tells biz leaders he sees parallels to old gig

New Broncos coach John Fox alternated between being a preacher and a prophet in his introduction to the Denver community.

Fox preached a dollop of patience during a keynote address Tuesday to 1,200 business leaders at the Pepsi Center while promising big things were on the horizon for the downtrodden franchise.

Fox says he sees parallels in Denver to his previous gig in Carolina, where he took the Panthers to the Super Bowl in 2004, two years after his arrival in Charlotte and his selection of Julius Peppers with the second overall draft pick.

The Broncos own the second overall pick in next month's draft following a franchise-worst 4-12 season.

The Broncos brought back John Elway as their chief of football operations, and he hired Fox as his coach.
