In yet another jarring shakeup, the Denver Broncos have reshuffled their front office for the second time in less than a year.
Denver dismissed general manager Jim Goodman and his son Jeff Goodman, another Broncos personnel executive, and promoted Brian Xanders from assistant general manager to general manager, a league source said Thursday.
Last year the Broncos fired then general manager Ted Sundquist, and now they have shaken up their front office yet again to go along with the recent coaching shakeup in which former Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels replaced head coach Mike Shanahan.
Xanders joined the Broncos in May after spending 14 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, where he worked as the Falcons’ director of football administration/player personnel analyst.
Xanders worked with the Falcons in a variety of capacities, including player personnel, coaching, salary cap management, information technology and business management. He was a member of the Falcons’ coaching staff on their 1998 team that became the first in franchise history to earn a Super Bowl berth (XXXIII).
