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.

Coaching to Blame for Denver Broncos' Defensive Struggles Sunday

Nov 4 2014 7:45am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

In a 43-21 rout by the New England Patriots, the Denver Broncos had issues on offense, defense and special teams. It’s not often that a team as good as the Broncos loses, and it’s hard to point the finger at one particular unit as to why. Although it was a team loss if there ever were one, the most concerning performance was that of a defense that came into the game as one of the best in the league—ranked sixth in points per game allowed through ...
