Joe Ellis, the Broncos’ team president since 2011, will take over operations for Bowlen, a spokesman confirmed to the Times.

Under Bowlen, the Broncos won back-to-back Super Bowls and became one of the most recognizable franchises in sports. He purchased the team in 1984.

According to the most recent Forbes report, the Broncos team is worth $1.05 billion.
