ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBSNewYork/AP) — John Fox is returning to work on Monday, less than a month after undergoing open-heart surgery, and he plans to coach the Denver Broncos in their game against the Tennessee Titans on Dec. 8.
What hasn’t been determined is whether Fox will coach from the sideline or the booth. Fox Sports first reported Fox’s impending return.
Team owner Pat Bowlen sent his private jet to Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday to bring Fox and his wife, Robin, back to Denver. Fox had been recuperating at his offseason home following aortic valve replacement surgery on Nov. 4.
Defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio has coached the team in Fox’s absence.
The Broncos visit the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in an AFC West showdown of 9-2 teams.
