There’s no doubt that Jack Del Rio is a great defensive mind, and he was a good choice for the Broncos’ defensive coordinator position.
Here’s what some Broncos are saying about the hire on Twitter.
Love the hire , just hope we can keep him around – Brian Dawkins
Think del rio was a great piece added to our team….looking forward to learn from him. – Cassius Vaughn
We are thrilled to be able to add such a well-respected defensive coach to our staff. 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. – John Fox via Denver Broncos
Del Rio’s experience both as a player (’85-’96) and as a coach (from strength and conditioning to head coach) brings a wealth of knowledge to a vastly improved Broncos defense.
It was hard to lose Dennis Allen, but the acquisition of Del Rio is sure to keep the Broncos’ defense on the “improvement track.”
