Denver Broncos head coach John Fox has agreed to a new 3-year contract, a team source tells 7Sports producer Jeff Howe.
Instead of giving Fox a contract extension, as some expected, the Broncos front office tore up the final year of his contract and gave Fox a new deal, the source said.
The Denver Post report's the contract is worth $5 million to $6 million per year.
Under Fox, the 2013 Broncos were 13-3 during the regular season with a record-breaking offense that took Denver to Super Bowl XLVIII.
The coach achieved all this after suffering a heart attack while playing golf in Charlotte, N.C., during the bye week in November. He later underwent aortic heart valve replacement surgery.
After nearly a month off, Fox returned to the Denver sideline against the Tennessee Titans on Dec. 8.
