Jaguars Offensive Coordinator Rumors

Update:

Ian Rapoport reports that former Broncos OC Adam Gase is expected to be hired by either the Jaguars or Ravens as their next offensive coordinator.

Jason La Canfora reports that the Jaguars have reached out to former Bills HC Doug Marrone regarding their offensive coordinator job.

  • However, La Canfora continues to hear that Marrone is more likely to accept a position with the Texans.
  • According to La Canfora, Marrone has a “very strong” relationship with Texans HC Bill O’Brien and there is reportedly “mutual interest” between the two parties.

The full list of candidates for the Jaguars’ position includes:

  • Vikings RBs coach Kirby Wilson
  • Jets RBs coach Anthony Lynn
  • former Bears HC Marc Trestman
  • former Bills HC Doug Marrone
  • former Bills OC  Nathaniel Hackett
  • Raiders OC Greg Olsen
  • Broncos OC Adam Gase

Mike Silver of NFL Media is reporting that Broncos OC Adam Gase will, in fact, interview for the Jaguars offensive coordinator position.

Gase has been a very popular offensive coordinator candidates since the 49ers elected to hire Jim Tomsula instead of him as their new head coach.

Jacksonville has reportedly met with former Bills OC  Nathaniel Hackett, Jets RBs coach Anthony Lynn, and Raiders OC Greg Olsen regarding the position this week.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that the Jaguars are interviewing Jets RBs coach Anthony Lynn for their offensive-coordinator vacancy on Saturday.

Jacksonville has already met with former Bills OC  Nathaniel Hackett and Raiders OC Greg Olsen regarding the position this week.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that the Jaguars are interviewing former Bills OC  Nathaniel Hackett for their offensive-coordinator vacancy on Friday.

Hackett’s name recently came up as a potential option for the St. Louis Rams, who also happen to be in the market for a offensive coordinator.

———-

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that former Raiders OC Greg Olsen has been at EverBank stadium all day meeting with Jaguars HC Gus Bradley.

According to Michael DiRocco of ESPN, the pool of candidates for the Jaguars offensive coordinator position includes:

———–

Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network reports that the Jaguars would like to talk to Broncos OC Adam Gase about their offensive coordinator position.

  • Darlington suggests that as the number of head coaching positions dwindles, teams start to believe that they can target someone for a lateral move.

Adam Gase reportedly was a close second to Jim Tomsula for the 49ers Head Coach position.

He has also been identified as one of the key indicators in whether or not Denver intends to bring back QB Peyton Manning, as Manning is very high on the coordinator.

Gase has been linked to the Bears and Falcons as well, so theoretically he is in the running for all three open spots.

Having said that, it did appear that San Francisco was his best shot, so it seems smart for Jacksonville to reach out to him to work as an offensive coordinator.  Gase could be willing to make the lateral move if he doesn’t think he has a good shot at any other remaining job.

Ian Rapoport reports that Raiders OC Greg Olsen is scheduled to meet with the Jaguars on Wednesday regarding their offensive coordinator vacancy.

Earlier in the day, Rapoport mentioned that Jacksonville has already spoken to Vikings RBs coach Kirby Wilson.

———

According to Josina Anderson, the Jaguars have requested permission to interview Jets assistant HC Anthony Lynn for their offensive coordinator position. 

———

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times Union is “hearing” that the Jaguars are not leaning towards hiring former Bears HC Marc Trestman as their next offensive coordinator at this point in time.

——–

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Jaguars are expected to interview former Bears HC Marc Trestman for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

  • Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day that the Jaguars have requested permission to interview 49ers OC Greg Roman and Vikings RBs coach Kirby Wilson for their offensive coordinator job.

Trestman has already interviewed with the Buccaneers for their opening, and according to Rapoport, Tampa Bay is a “strong option” for him.

Rapoport mentions that Trestman has had “constant dialogue” with Jaguars HC Gus Bradley for a week now.

As soon as Jacksonville parted ways with Jedd Fisch, Trestman’s name came up as some to watch for the job.

Landing a coach like Trestman would be a great addition for the Jaguars, especially when you consider that they have a young quarterback to develop in Blake Bortles.

We’ll have more updates regarding the Jaguars offensive coordinator search as the news is available.
