Broncos fire Coach Josh McDaniels

Denver -- The Denver Broncos have fired Coach Josh McDaniels in the wake of an illegal taping scandal, the team's Web site reported Monday.

Broncos.com said team owner Pat Bowlen had relieved McDaniels of his duties after guiding the squad to a 3-9 record so far this season.

The move came after the Broncos lost Sunday for seventh time in eight games, 10-6 to the Kansas City Chiefs, and also follows an incident in which both McDaniels and the team paid $50,000 fines last month for the illegal taping of an opponent's practice.
