Jack Del Rio’s wife Linda Del Rio will be along for the ride, no matter what the future holds for the coach.
Jack Del Rio has found his name in the press a lot lately. Between serving as interim head coach of the Denver Bronco’s in John Fox’s absence, as well as his interviewing with USC for their head coaching vacancy and finally becoming coach of the Oakland Raiders, it seems like Del Rio is everywhere.
Jack and Linda Del Rio are devout Catholics with Jack citing Linda for helping him return to the church. In an interview with Faith Magazine, Jack explains:
The good thing is that I had married Linda, a good Catholic girl from Lafayette, Louisiana, and we started going to Mass together. There were times when I was beginning to question my faith and there were so many non-denominational movements on teams that I played. I even talked my wife into visiting other churches and was considering whether or not I would continue to practice Catholicism.
Jack and Linda have four children together, with one of their daughters modeling in an advertising campaign for ladies Jaguar apparel during his time as head coach in Jacksonville. Son Luke Del Rio is currently playing football for Oklahoma State.
Jack and Linda have created charitable ties in every community they’ve entered. Most notably, they established the Jack Del Rio Foundation, which serves to improve the lives of children in Northern Florida, expanding to Denver as well since his tenure with the Broncos (and presumably to the USC area in the fall).
