KUSA- Jack Del Rio will be back on the Broncos sideline next season, a source within the organization has confirmed.

The defensive coordinator guided the Broncos during John Fox's absence - while the head coach was recovering from heart surgery. Del Rio also had the difficult task of leading a very depleted unit for much of the season as there were numerous injuries to starters including Von Miller, Derek Wolfe, Kevin Vickerson and Rahim Moore.

He has agreed in terms to a new two year contract with Denver.

The Broncos defense gave up on average 356 yards and 24.9 points per game this season.
