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.

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 ...

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 acr ...

Scouting the enemy: Denver Broncos vs. Seattle Seahawks

What's the meaning of 24? Seattle Seahawks Offense - Ranked 14th in yards per game - Ranked 25th in passing yards per game - Ranked 4th in rushing yards per game - Ranked 4th in points per game (28.5) Summary: Russell Wilson enters his 3rd season much in the same way he has spent his previous two - game manager.

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 ...

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 foca ...

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 ...
