ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Mike Shanahan attended a Denver Broncos practice for the first time since he was fired as coach on New Year's Eve 2008.
"I was glad he was here," new head coach Vic Fangio said after practice Saturday. "I think it's good he's here. Mike's got a big part in the rich history of this franchise and he's welcome to come here anytime he wants."
Fangio said he and Shanahan go back a long way "as competitors but not long as friends. We've just gotten to know each other the last" several years.
