One of the big questions facing the Denver Broncos this offseason was whether their new coach, whoever it was, would be a good fit for quarterback Tim Tebow.
Now we know that the new coach is John Fox, and the early indications are that he likes Tebow’s potential, and has for a year.
The Denver Post reports that Fox and Tebow got along well during the pre-draft process a year ago when the Panthers were considering drafting Tebow, and that some of Fox’s friends around the league think Fox liked Tebow better than Jimmy Clausen, whom the Panthers took in the second round of the draft.
Tebow said he expects to work well with Fox.
“I had a great relationship with Coach Fox throughout the entire draft process and got to know him quite a bit,” Tebow said. “I’m very excited for him to be my head coach, and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
Fox does, however, seem to agree with his boss, John Elway, that Tebow has plenty of work to do.
“He’s got a lot of intangibles I look for,” Fox said of Tebow. “Where that goes it’s hard to predict.”
But all indications are that Fox looks forward to finding out.
