Broncos Hire Jack Del Rio as Defensive Coordinator, According to Report

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting on Twitter that the Denver Broncos have hired Jack Del Rio to fill the defensive coordinator void left when the Oakland Raiders hired Dennis Allen to be their head coach.

Prior to his nine years as head coach of the Jaguars, which was a largely unsuccessful era, he was the defensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers in 2002, a year in which they ranked 2nd in total defense. Prior to that he was the linebackers coach for the Baltimore Ravens from 1999-2001.
