“I can’t say anything other than Josh and I mutually agreed to part ways,” Nolan said.

With a new 3-4 defense the Broncos gave up the fewest points in the NFL (66) during the first six games of the season on the way to 6-0 start, but faltered the second half of the season and were torched for 44 points in the season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs.
