5. Jack Del Rio
Jack Del Rio, most recently a head coach of the Oakland Raiders, has spent 2018 away from football doing some world traveling and apparently keeping up with the league from a bird’s eye view.
I know this candidate would not sit extremely well with the majority of Broncos Country because of the perception that in 2014, Del Rio had one foot out the door when the Raiders’ job became open, but he would be a solid candidate.
He has a career coaching record of 93-94 (1-3 in postseason play) and was the coach of the Raiders during their 12-4 playoff season.
Del Rio has a lot of experience as a head coach in the NFL and has taken a couple of teams in the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders with a long history of losing into postseason play.
There are also a couple of things to consider here.
Del Rio has a poor playoff record as a head coach with his only victory coming in 2007. He has also been a head coach for a combined 12 seasons and doesn’t have a division title to his name.
Now, he had some very difficult competition in his time with the Jaguars having to go up against Peyton Manning his entire time there, but it’s worth noting.
Del Rio is familiar with a lot of the players in Denver, he’s obviously familiar with the front office, and if he wants to get back into coaching in the NFL, the Broncos’ job could be an option.
