Denver Broncos defensive coordinator and former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio has emerged as a favorite to succeed Lane Kiffin as USC Trojans mentor.

Could Jack Del Rio possibly be the next USC Trojans head football coach?

Del Rio, who is currently the Denver Broncos defensive coordinator, hasn't left Denver yet and is highly vouched for by his boss, Broncos coach John Fox. According to Lindsay H. Jones of USA Today Sports, Fox quipped Del Rio is "definitely qualified" to take on the Trojans job.

Jones points out there are several Internet rumors saying Del Rio was spotted at Los Angeles International Airport but Fox promptly refuted these hearsays. 

He said,"He wasn't at LAX. I was actually with him at Del Frisco's when that came out."

Del Frisco's is an "upscale steakhouse," per Jones, who adds he and Fox go a long way back, dating to their days with the Carolina Panthers when Fox was the head coach and he was defensive coordinator.

The Denver Post reported on September 30 that Del Rio will work through the 2013 NFL season and finish his contract with the Broncos, virtually ending speculation he will leave for USC anytime soon.  

The report cites two Broncos sources who said "the team would not allow Del Rio out of his contract until it expires in February." Even if he doesn't get the USC job, he will still be a strong candidate for other NFL head coaching jobs that will be open.

The Trojans fired Kiffin on Sunday, less than six hours after the team lost 62-41 to the Arizona State Sun Devils. USC athletic director Pat Haden consulted with his advisers and made the decision after the Sun Devils scored 28 unanswered points in the third quarter. 

USC was 3-2 when Kiffin, who finished 28-15 overall, was dismissed.

Broncos players emphasize the win, improvements, not the mistakes

Sep 16 2014 11:30am CDT | Source: milehighreport

A win is a win is a win is a win. The Denver Broncos come away with a 'W' against the Kansas City Chiefs despite their best efforts to beat themselves with penalties and missed opportunities, but players keep pledging that these mistakes and miscues are temporary. Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chiefs was anything but satisfying, but if you didn't watch the game and only listened to players' comments, you might have a different impressi ...

Bend but don't break is broken

After a 24-17 divisional victory, one should just be happy that the Broncos won the game, right? Wrong. "Never apologize for getting wins in this league, men" - John Fox I agree, you shouldn't apologize for a win. In the end, the Broncos are 2-0 heading into a rematch with the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. Winning isn't the issue though, they way the Broncos did it remains the focal point. It took a goal-line stand on 4th down to take do ...

Chiefs vs. Broncos: Breaking Down Denver's Game Plan

Sep 12 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Denver Broncos opened the 2014 season with a win. They defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31-24, holding off the Colts as they made a fourth-quarter comeback. This week, the Broncos play the division rival Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are coming off a somewhat shocking loss at home to the Tennessee Titans.

Horse tracks: Real football is back (and so is the Orange Crush)!

The Seahawks cruised to a win on the opening night of the 2014 NFL season, Jack Del Rio thinks that his Broncos defense can be the second coming of the legendary Orange Crush, and the Broncos remain preseason favorites to win the Super Bowl, despite Wes Welker's suspension. Football is back (in case you missed it). The Seahawks beat the Packers quite handily in the grand opening of the 2014 NFL season, without the help of the replaceme ...

Denver Broncos: Why They Are Equipped to Replace Danny Trevathan

Aug 17 2014 12:17am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Last year, Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan was irreplaceable. During the playoffs, with star pass-rusher Von Miller out, middle linebacker Wesley Woodyard struggling and aging veteran Paris Lenon being forced into action, Trevathan shined. According to Pro Football Focus, he posted a cumulative playoff grade of plus-5.6 , and he combined for three interceptions, two sacks and 56 tackles in the games in which Von Miller missed all or most of. But now, the ...
