Jack Del Rio is now officially the Broncos' interim head coach/defensive coordinator.
The Broncos announced the move Monday with Head Coach John Fox expected to miss several weeks as he recovers from an aortic heart valve replacement.
Del Rio will continue his role as the team's defensive coordinator.
Del Rio, who is in his 17th NFL season and second with the Broncos, spent nine years as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2003-11 before joining the Broncos as the team's defensive coordinator.
Fox was taken to a Charlotte-area hospital after feeling light-headed while playing golf on Saturday. After undergoing testing and further observation, it was determined that Fox will undergo the procedure this week instead of waiting for the offseason, when it had been previously scheduled.
