The Denver Post is reporting that Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is stepping down after 30 seasons due to his battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Team president Joe Ellis will assume control of the Broncos as Bowlen focuses on his health.

“It’s a really, really sad day,” Ellis said. “It’s sad for his family, his wife and his seven children. It’s sad for everyone in the organization. And it’s sad for all the Bronco fans who know what Pat Bowlen meant to them as an owner. It’s a day nobody wanted to see happen.”

Bowlen has placed his Broncos’ ownership in the Pat Bowlen Trust that is controlled by non-family members.
