John Fox says he'll coach from sideline in Broncos return

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Fox will be on the sideline, not in a press box, when he returns as Denver's head coach Sunday against the Titans.

John Fox will resume his role as head coach of the Denver Broncos Sunday afternoon against the Tennessee Titans, and he will be coaching from the sideline when he does so, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

The 58-year-old Fox, who has been away from the team since undergoing heart surgery on Nov. 4, said during his Friday press conference that he will not be coaching from the press box as some had speculated, and will instead take his familiar spot on the sideline.

Denver went 2-1 under interim head coach Jack Del Rio, who will resume his role as defensive coordinator against the Titans. The loss, one of just two for the Broncos this season, came to the New England Patriots in overtime in Week 12. Del Rio led the team to a pair of wins over the division rival Kansas City Chiefs, who Denver dispatched, 35-28, last Sunday.
