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.

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 Broncos will have to su ...

What do NFL coaches look for during the preseason?

Aug 6 2014 5:22pm CDT | Source: milehighreport

Quotes from football coaching symposiums shed some light on what the exhibition games mean to NFL coaches. It's well known many fans dislike the preseason but those who do pay attention to it go in with some goals for their team. We know what we are looking for or we have a player, or players, we are excited to see in game. But coaches view the preseason slightly differently, while they obviously like to see their whole team play well, before each ga ...

Denver Broncos Sleeper: Expectations for Quanterus Smith

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

The Denver Broncos have no problem taking a chance on a player returning from injury. That’s what they did when they selected defensive end Quanterus Smith in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL draft. This is the team that waited patiently for tight end Julius Thomas to get healthy. Their patience paid off last year as Thomas became a star. They showed patience again when dealing with safety Quinton Carter. He’s finally healthy, and Carter ...

How the Denver Broncos Have Changed for the Better This Offseason

Jul 31 2014 1:26pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In last year’s Super Bowl, the Seattle Seahawks exposed a tremendous flaw in what had been a juggernaut of an offensive team during the regular season. The Denver Broncos, despite their record-breaking numbers, were woefully one-dimensional en route to a 43-8 route in Super Bowl XLVIII. Again, look at that score (and the record-breaking numbers). The Seahawks dismantled that offense with a strong defensive line, s ...

T.J Ward has added an element of physicality and toughness to the Broncos defense. While the signings of defensive end DeMarcus Ware, cornerback Aqib Talib, and receiver Emmanuel Sanders is getting much of the attention, the signing of T.J Ward might have the greatest impact on the 2014 Denver Broncos. The Broncos had their first padded practice of 2014 on Saturday, and Ward's toughness, and physicality is evident, "I ...

Von Miller cuts weight, wants to bounce back

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Von Miller wants to forget about last season, not just the way it began with a drug suspension and ended with a torn ACL but also how he experimented with packing on too much muscle. He’s dropped at least 25 pounds, saying, "a Ferrari isn’t built to carry luggage to and from the airport." "You just want to be light, streamlined and that’s just what I’m trying to get to," said Miller, who’s back in the 240 ...
