Pro Bowl 2013 AFC coaches: John Fox, Broncos staff lead AFC

Dustin Bradford

The Broncos' staff includes first-time offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who received a promotion following Mike McCoy's departure to coach the San Diego Chargers.

With the 2013 Pro Bowl coming up on Sunday, here's a look the coaching staff for AFC, led by Denver Broncos head coach John Fox:

John Fox (head coach)

Fox leads the AFC team after he led the Broncos to the No. 1 seed in the AFC in 2012. Fox, who just finished his second year with the Broncos, led the team to a 13-3 overall record. The Broncos lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round after earning a first-round bye.

Fox has been a head coach in the NFL since 2002. He spent nine seasons as the head coach of the Carolina Panthers, leading the team to the playoffs three times. Fox took the Panthers to Super Bowl XXXVIII, but lost to the New England Patriots.

Fox is 94-82 overall during the regular season. He is 6-5 in the playoffs.

Adam Gase (offensive coordinator)

Gase's first job as an offensive coordinator comes in this Sunday's Pro Bowl. Gase was promoted to the Broncos' offensive coordinator Jan. 17. Gase replaced Mike McCoy, who left Denver to become the head coach of the San Diego Chargers.

Gase, who was previously the team's quarterbacks coach, is one of the youngest coordinators in the NFL at age 34. He's been coaching in the NFL since 2005. He joined the Broncos in 2009 as the wide receivers coach.

Jack Del Rio (defensive coordinator)

Del Rio is coming off of his first season as the Broncos' defensive coordinator. Like most coaches who can't hit it off as a head coach, Del Rio found a coordinator job to keep his coaching career going.

Del Rio led the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2003 into 2011. He and the Jags went to the postseason twice, with both years ending with losses to the Patriots.

Del Rio, 49, has a lifetime 68-71 coaching record. He helped the Baltimore Ravens win Super Bowl XXXV as an assistant coach. He also played 11 seasons in the NFL as a linebacker. He split time with New Orleans, Kansas City, Dallas and Minnesota.

Jeff Rodgers (special teams)

Rodgers has nine years experience in the NFL, with the last two coming as the special teams coordinator in Denver. He came to Denver with John Fox from Carolina. Rodgers was the special teams coordinator for the Panthers for two seasons.

Rodgers has also held roles instructing special teams units, as well as coaching in college.
