ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Jack Del Rio only wanted to talk about the Cowboys, not the Trojans.

In his first for-the-record comments since his name's been bandied about as a possible replacement for Lane Kiffin at USC, Del Rio declined Thursday to address speculation he might return to his alma mater.

Asked if he'd been contacted by USC, the Denver Broncos' defensive coordinator said, "No. No. No, there's nothing to speak on that subject. I'm really here to talk about the Cowboys and our preparation in getting ready for them."

The Broncos (4-0) visit Dallas (2-2) on Sunday.

Del Rio joined John Fox's staff in Denver last year after serving as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2003-11.

Kiffin was fired Sunday and replaced by interim coach Ed Orgeron.
