Denver Broncos head coach John FOX told reporters on Tuesday that he plans on coaching again this season after undergoing heart valve surgery.
“Oh yeah, I don’t think there is any question,” Fox said via ProFootballTalk.com. “There’s always a question – that’s why I don’t like putting timelines – but my goal and dream is to be there obviously before the conclusion of this season.”
“I don’t really like putting timelines on it. I can just tell you that I’m working very hard to get better and I feel like my doctors are pleased that I’ve improved every day. So things are going great. I like where I’m at right now and we’ll see where that leaves us.”
Fox has been encouraged by his recovery.
“I think the fact that the normal length of open heart surgery is five to seven days – I was out in four,” Fox said.
“There is always some scary parts to it, and I’m past those. Right now it’s a matter of just doing the right thing. I’ve got good docs, I’ve got a great team in charge of me and they’re doing a terrific job. I’m feeling better every day.”
