ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is giving up control of the team because of Alzheimer's disease.
The 70-year-old Bowlen will no longer be a part of the club's daily operations, the Broncos announced Wednesday. Team President Joe Ellis is adding the title of chief executive officer and will have final say on all matters.
The Broncos say the ownership of the franchise is held in a trust Bowlen set up more than a decade ago in hopes that one of his seven children will one day run the team.
