Wow, guess that experiment didn't work. I feel kind of bad for the guy. He gets interviewed for some jobs, bounced and then has problems....Dallas to Miami to Green Bay to Denver

Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan and defensive coordinator Jim Bates came to a mutual agreement to part ways Tuesday.

Bates, who was a head coach candidate when he was with the Green Bay Packers, was hired last year to turn around the Broncos defense. The team went backward instead of forward. Bates and Shanahan met Monday and came to a resolution late Monday night.

The Broncos signed Bates to a three-year, $3.9 million contract last year.

"I'm very thankful for the opportunity and very saddened that things did not work out," Bates said in statement. "I had the opportunity to stay, Mike has been very fair with me, and the final decision, for the Broncos and for me, was to step aside."

No. Our OC resigned and took over the HC job at Texas A&M.

But most of us arel hoping that our DC gets fired and we hire a better one.
