Jaguars Have OC Jay Gruden Pegged As Their Next Head Coach?

NFL Network’s Albert Breer reports that Bengals OC Jay Gruden appears to be the favorite to land the Jacksonville Jaguars head coaching job.

There have been a number of offensive coordinators linked to the Jaguars in recent days and considering how bad their offense was last year, it makes plenty of sense.

Gruden has done a great job with rookie QB Andy Dalton this year and is a big reason why they’ll be playing this weekend.  Jaguars owner Shahid Khan referred to Blaine Gabbert as the teams franchise quarterback earlier in the night so Gruden would have to continue working his magic with another young quarterback who might not be as talented as Dalton.

We want to develop him and we need to give him tools and a dedicated coach,” said Khan. “I think he’s going to be a great quarterback. I think he is our franchise QB.”

An interview will not be setup until after the teams playoff game this weekend so you can expect to hear more about Gruden in the coming days.
