Broncos owner giving up control due to Alzheimer’s

DENVER — Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is giving up control of the team as he battles Alzheimer’s disease.

The team announced Wednesday that the 70-year-old Bowlen will no longer be a part of the team’s daily operations. Team president Joe Ellis will take over after being named as the Broncos’ chief executive officer.

The Broncos say the ownership of the team is held in a trust in hopes that one of Bowlen’s children will run the team one day.

Under Bowlen’s guidance, the Broncos made six Super Bowl appearances and won six AFC championships.
