Sarkisian Accepts Head Coaching Position at USC

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Spor

Steve Sarkisian has accepted the head coaching position at the University of Southern California.

No, you did not click the wrong link. This is still a Denver Broncos blog, but this is news for Broncos fans.

Jack Del Rio now has a great reason to remain the defensive coordinator of the team in 2014:

It is impossible to speculate right now how deep in the search Del Rio made it, but we do know that he interviewed for the head coaching position at the University of Southern California during Denver's Bye Week.

Del Rio, as you are all well aware has been the interim head coach for the Broncos over the last four weeks and has posted a 3-1 record, including two wins against the previously undefeated Kansas City Chiefs.

The news of Steve Sarkisian accepting the job comes just as John Fox returns to work today:

"[We’ll] welcome coach Fox, that’ll be great,’’ Del Rio said Sunday. "We went through a tough stretch, missed him and it’ll be great to have him back as a football team that took care of business. … It was an honor to be called on, but it was something I couldn’t do on my own and I think I asked everybody to help and everybody did. We were just an eyelash away from getting all four of them, but we ended up winning three in a tough quarter.’’

Now, this does not mean that Del Rio will be back indefinitely. Denver has yet to not lose a coordinator in the the offseason since Fox has been the head coach. The further the Broncos win into the playoffs, the more likely it will be that Del Rio will receive a fine offer to remain in the NFL, but as a head coach of another team.
