Jack Del Rio (born April 4, 1963) is an American football coach and former player, who is currently the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League (NFL). Del Rio played both football and baseball for the University of Southern California Trojans, and then spent eleven years playing linebacker in the NFL. He retired from playing in 1996 and went into coaching, serving in several positions for three different teams before being selected as the Jaguars' head coach in 2003.

Del Rio was born in Castro Valley, California. He attended and played both baseball and football for Hayward High School in Hayward, California. He and former Seattle Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu were teammates in both sports while there.

Del Rio was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays Major League Baseball team out of high school in 1981, but he opted instead to attend college. He enrolled at the University of Southern California, where he played both baseball and football for the USC Trojans. In football he was an All-American linebacker and was voted Most Valuable Player of the 1985 Rose Bowl. During his senior year he earned consensus All-America honors as a senior and was runner-up for the Lombardi Award. In baseball he batted .340 while playing catcher on a team that also included future Major League Baseball players Mark McGwire and Randy Johnson.
