The Denver Broncos have fired head coach Josh Mcdaniels.

Mcdaniels was let go by team owner Pat Bowlen Monday afternoon following the team's 10-6 loss to division rival Kansas City on Sunday.  The team has gone 7-22 since starting 6-0 in 2009. That represents the team's worst record over 29 games since 1970-71.

Running backs coach Eric Studesville will replace Mcdaniels for the remainder of this season.
