Broncos hire Jack Del Rio

Reuniting in Denver, John Fox and Jack Del Rio are on the same staff again. Fox hired Del Rio as his new defensive coordinator Friday night, replacing new Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen. They worked together in Carolina when Del Rio was the Panthers' defensive coordinator before he was hired as the Jacksonville Jaguars' head coach. Del Rio was fired in November.

"We are thrilled to be able to add such a well-respected defensive coach to our staff," Fox said. "He was an integral part of our turnaround on defense during my first year with the Panthers in 2002. His defenses with the Jaguars have ranked among the NFL's best, and we are excited he's a Bronco."

NOTE: The Broncos hired Luke Richesson as head strength coach. He was previously with the Jaguars.
