The Denver Broncos are mourning a loss in their extended family. The team confirmed in a statement on Wednesday that the parents of running backs coach Eric Studesville died in an accident on Tuesday.

"Our most heartfelt condolences go to Eric Studesville and his entire family following the tragic loss of his parents, Al and Jan Studesville," the statement read. "We were devastated to learn of their passing today. Our thoughts and prayers are with Eric and his family, and our organization will support them however possible during this difficult time."

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Al and Jan Studesville were killed on a Texas highway when the motorcycle they were riding collided head-on with a tow truck that had veered into their lane.

Eric Studesville, 46, has been on the Broncos' staff since 2010 and has 17 years of experience as an NFL assistant. Studesville was Denver's interim head coach in 2010 following the firing of Josh McDaniels, then was retained by John Fox when he was hired as head coach in 2011.
