Prior to the Broncos Super Bowl 50 victory with Peyton Manning under center, the only two titles came in 1997 and 1998 with John Elway and head coach Mike Shanahan. The latter will join Elway in the team’s Ring of Honor according to the Broncos’ website.

“Mike Shanahan is the greatest coach in Denver Broncos history and among the winningest coaches of all-time,” president and CEO Joe Ellis said in a team statement. “He brought an unmatched standard and intensity as head coach, leading this franchise to its first two Super Bowl wins and building the Broncos into perennial contenders. We are thrilled that Mike has now been elected to the Broncos’ Ring of Fame.”

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, the 2020 induction ceremony will take place in 2021.

The Broncos made the playoffs seven times including winning back-to-back Super Bowls in 1997-98 in Elway’s final two seasons. Shanahan remained in Denver through the 2008 season before sitting out all of 2009. He returned to coach Washington for four seasons in 2010.

Shanahan’s 170 career coaching victories rank him 15th among all coaches in NFL history. Currently, his son Kyle Shanahan coaches the defending NFC Champion San Franciso 49ers.   He is the Broncos’ all-time winningest coach.
