The Denver Broncos confirmed defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was interviewed by USC during their bye week.

Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio interviewed for the USC Trojans head coaching job on Nov. 1 during the Broncos' bye week.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, "USC athletic director Pat Haden had called the Broncos to seek permission to interview Del Rio, even though college administrators are not obligated to. The Broncos were impressed by Haden's courtesy and allowed Del Rio to interview at the convenient time of the bye week."  

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports added USC interviewed Del Rio a day before the news of Broncos head coach John Fox's impending heart valve surgery broke out. The development resulted in Del Rio being given the interim coaching job, which he still has as Fox is expected to sit out Denver's Monday Night Football game against the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 18.  

Klis confirms Fox is still recuperating in Charlotte, N.C.

Cardiologists say aortic valve replacement surgery recovery and rehab "can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months," per the Associated Press. This means Del Rio will most likely have his hands full coaching the Broncos until the end of the 2013 NFL season. 

For his part, Del Rio hasn't divulged his interest in coaching the Trojans to the media. If he is inclined to take their offer,"USC would have to wait for him to fulfill his contractual obligations to the Broncos, which expire after the Super Bowl," the Associated Press report goes on to say.  

The USC head coaching job is vacant after Haden fired Lane Kiffin after a 3-2 start to the 2013 NCAA season and a 62-41 loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils on Sept. 29. Ed Orgeron was tapped to coach the team on an interim basis and has gone 5-1 since. 

Del Rio, Fox's former defensive coordinator with the Carolina Panthers, amassed a 69-73 record as Jacksonville Jaguars head coach from 2003-2011. Prior to his NFL coaching career, he had spent 11 seasons in the league as a linebacker. 

His USC interview comes as no surprise as he played for the Trojans during his college days. He was even named co-Rose Bowl MVP in 1985.

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 ...

What Danny Trevathan's Expected Return Means for Denver Broncos Defense

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 B ...

Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware Being Used Effectively by the Denver Broncos

Oct 1 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Denver Broncos wanted to improve their pass rush this year. That's one of the main reasons why they signed future Hall of Fame defensive end DeMarcus Ware in free agency. The plan was to team Ware with linebacker Von Miller to give the team one of the most dangerous pass-rushing duos in the league. Both players were coming off disappointing performances in 2013. Ware, then with the Dallas Cowboys, was held back by a nagging elbow injury and finished the year with only six sacks. Mi ...

Broncos vs. Seahawks: The No Bull Review

Sep 23 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

This game has been circled on my calendar since the Super Bowl. Not for the sake of revenge, but to find out what progress our team would make. Let's dig into our first loss of the season and find out more about our 2014 Denver Broncos. Let me start off by saying this was an extremely frustrating game for me to watch. Our team for some strange reason is just dead-set on being something they are not. After week 3, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Fox has ...

New, Physical Broncos Defense Now Officially Battle-Tested

Sep 23 2014 6:16am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Seattle Seahawks physically dominated the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl last February, and for a short time last Sunday, it looked like they would do the same in the rematch. The Broncos’ early offensive game plan was so conservative it bordered on scared, and the Seahawks built a 17-3 lead by halftime. Quarterback Peyton Manning and Denver’s talented offense sputtered until the fourth quarter, but something changed on the defensive side ...

Horse Tracks: No one is to blame for Broncos loss to Seahawks

Sep 22 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: milehighreport

Stuff happens in football games. Sometimes that stuff benefits your team, other times it screws them. The end result was an exciting 26-20 thriller in overtime that should give us all confidence in this team moving forward. If you absolutely must blame something for the impressive 26-20 overtime game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, then blame fate. Fate caused the coin to fall in the Seahawks favor to start overtime. It c ...

Take a bow Broncos coaching staff, you cost your team the game

Sep 21 2014 7:43pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

A game with that many ups and downs will undoubtedly have a lot of points where the tide could have turned one way or another. One thing is for certain though, Jack Del Rio and his failure to account to Russell Wilson and inability to adjust to his roll-outs cost the Broncos a chance at a hard fought win on the road. Let's start with the offense - The Good There wasn't a lot of good. Their first possession they moved the bal ...

What to Expect from the Denver Broncos Defense Against the Seattle Seahawks

Sep 20 2014 4:33pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Denver Broncos this week come up against their Super Bowl nemesis from last year, the Seattle Seahawks. Fresh from a dismantling of their general game by the brilliant Seahawks last season, the Broncos have identified the source of their loss and have attempted to solve the issue. Their campaign last season ended in ashes largely due to their defense, but they will be hoping that from those ashes a phoenix will rise. They have made changes across the bo ...
