ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Jordan Matthews Eagles Jersey . -- Denver Broncos coach John Fox underwent heart surgery Monday in North Carolina, team
Executive Vice-President John Elway said. Elway said he hasnt received an update
yet. Fox underwent aortic valve replacement surgery while defensive co-ordinator
Jack Del Rio was running practice after being named interim head coach. Elway
said he knew Fox needed a heart operation, which had been scheduled for after
the season. Del Rio was named interim head coach Monday when the Broncos
returned from their bye. He will remain Denvers defensive co-ordinator while
running the team for several weeks while Fox recovers. Like Fox, Del Rios roots
are on the defensive side of the ball. This is his 17th season coaching in the
NFL following an 11-year playing career with the Saints, Chiefs, Cowboys and
Vikings. That includes eight-plus seasons as head coach in Jacksonville, where
he was 69-73, including 1-2 in the playoffs from 2003-11. The Jaguars havent
been anywhere near competitive since his dismissal in 2011. Del Rio joined Foxs
staff last season -- he also served as Foxs defensive co-ordinator in Carolina
in 2002 -- and the Broncos ranked second in the league in yards allowed a year
after ranking dead last in the league. The Broncos are ranked 24th in defence
this season, but they were missing star linebacker Von Miller and cornerback
Champ Bailey for much of the first half of the season and are coming off their
best performance of the year in a 45-21 win over Washington last month. Fox was
hoping to put off his operation until the off-season but after meeting with his
cardiologist in North Carolina late last week, he began feeling dizzy while
playing golf near his off-season home in Charlotte on Saturday and was
hospitalized. The Broncos (7-1) play at San Diego on Sunday as they seek their
19th win in their last 20 regular-season games. While pulling double duty, Del
Rio will rely on other members of the coaching staff to pitch in, men such as
linebackers coach Richard Smith, a former defensive co-ordinator, and running
backs coach Eric Studesville, who served as Denvers interim head coach following
Josh McDaniels firing late in 2010. Hell also rely on his captains, particularly
Peyton Manning and Wesley Woodyard. Del Rio has long commanded the respect of
his players, who appreciate his resume as a star NFL linebacker. Hes a lot like
Fox in that hes considered a players coach, one who understands things from
their perspective. Although they have similar philosophies, backgrounds and
approaches, Del Rios sideline demeanour can differ from the easygoing Foxs. At
Indianapolis, he dressed down Bailey for his abysmal coverage on a touchdown
pass just as vehemently as he castigated rookie linebacker Danny Trevathan for
fumbling a pick-6 at the goal line in the season opener. Bennie Logan Eagles Jersey . Petersburg of the KHL. Belov was a free agent last summer when he signed a one-year contract
