The Denver Broncos have given defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio a two-year extension.
Del Rio, 50, took over the defensive coordinator role of the Broncos in 2012. The deal should be finalized on Friday according to the Denver Post.
“Jack did a nice job with our defense,” said John Elway, the Broncos’ executive vice president of football operations. “We had a lot of injuries on that defensive side and Jack did a good job holding that side together. Even in the Super Bowl, our defense kept us in the game in the first half.”
Before joining the Broncos, Del Rio was the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. When Broncos head coach John Fox had open-heart surgery it was Del Rio who led the Broncos to a 3-1 mark.
