The Denver Broncos are interviewing Wade Phillips for their vacant defensive coordinator position, reports ESPN.com's Ed Werder.

Phillips has not coached in the NFL since the 2013 season, when he coached the Texans' final three games following the firing of Gary Kubiak. Kubiak was hired last week to become the head coach of the Broncos after spending one season as the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator.

Denver is seeking to replace Jack Del Rio, who left to become the Oakland Raiders head coach.

Phillips, 67, has been a head coach with the Broncos, Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys and has been an interim coach with the New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans.

He has an 82-64 record with two division titles and a 1-5 playoff mark in 12 years as a head coach.
