ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (USA Today) — For John Elway, nothing but Super Bowl championships matter.

That’s how it was when he was a player, and that’s how it is for Elway now that he’s running the Denver Broncos front office.

Elway, who in four years as the Broncos’ top football executive has pulled off stunner after stunner — his free agent coups have included signing Peyton Manning, Wes Welker and DeMarcus Ware — made the most shocking NFL move of 2015 Monday when he decided to part ways with head coach John Fox.

The move — it was described by the Broncos, Elway and Fox as a mutual parting — came after an hour-long conversation between the men a day after the Broncos lost 24-13 in the playoffs to the Indianapolis Colts.

Despite heightened expectations, the Manning-led Broncos have fallen short in the last three postseasons. Despite owning the No. 1 seed, they lost a divisional round stunner at home to the Baltimore Ravens following the 2012 season, were blown out in last year’s Super Bowl by the Seattle Seahawks and fell Sunday to the underdog Colts, a team Denver handled in Week 1.
