Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has relinquished day-to-day control of the team due to Alzheimer’s disease. The team made the announcement Wednesday, saying the 70-year-old Bowlen had been privately battling the disease in recent years.

Daily operations of the team will continue to be assumed by club president Joe Ellis and John Elway will continue to run the football department.

Bowlen had already placed his ownership share into a trust that is controlled by non-family members with a long-tern goal for one of seven children to eventually run the franchise.
