NCAA: Jack Del Rio Emerges as Favorite to be USC Trojans Coach

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.

Denver Broncos: Has Chris Harris Become the NFL's Best Cornerback?

Oct 21 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Denver Broncos revamped their defense this offseason. They went after big-name free agents on the defensive side of the ball as soon as they were allowed to. Additions like strong safety T.J. Ward, defensive end DeMarcus Ware and cornerback Aqib Talib have paid off in a big way for the Broncos this season. The Broncos made these moves to upgrade the defense that struggled to stop—or even slow down—the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48. A player who missed the Super Bo ...

Danny Trevathan injury is different this time

Oct 13 2014 2:41pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

Same leg. Different injury. 3-6 weeks, reportedly. A lot of people saw Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan carted off the field Sunday with a left leg injury and assumed he had been rushed back to the field too soon. After all, he missed seven weeks in the preseason and regular season when he cracked a bone below his left knee in training camp, and he had only been back one previous game. Presumably he suffered a setback to the same fracture in his leg ...

Oct 4 2014 5:18pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

During the offseason, the Denver Broncos made a series of high-profile moves in order to bolster the defensive side of the football. Adding the likes of Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward and DeMarcus Ware has helped Denver improve in some areas through the first month of the season. For instance, the unit is currently ranked 13th in scoring defense, allowing 22.3 points per game. It was ranked 22nd and allowed 24.9 points per game in 2013. Unfortunately, the Bro ...
