ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos have promoted Brian Xanders as their general manager.

Xanders joined the Broncos as assistant general manager May 5 after several seasons in the Atlanta Falcons organization.

He served as assistant general manager in Denver along with Jeff Goodman, whose father, Jim, was the Broncos' vice president of football operations.

Both of the Goodmans were fired thursday when Xanders was promoted.

Owner Pat Bowlen says he's confident Xanders and new coach Josh McDaniels will lead the Broncos back to the playoffs. They've missed out the last three years.
