The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially hired former Raiders OC Greg Olsen as their new offensive coordinator, according to John Oesher of Jaguars.com.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Jaguars are in fact hiring former Raiders OC Greg Olsen as their new offensive coordinator.
There have been conflicting reports regarding whether or not Olsen will get the job, but it appears as though the two sides have finally reached an agreement.
Despite a previous report that the Jaguars have hired former Raiders OC Greg Olsen to be their offensive coordinator, HC Gus Bradley told reports that they have yet to offer the job to anyone, per Ryan O’Halloran.
According to O’Halloran, the Jaguars’ coordinator search is “ongoing,” but could be completed Tuesday night.
Jason La Canfora reports that the Jaguars are hiring Greg Olson as their offensive coordinator.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media mentioned that Broncos OC Adam Gase could end up as the Jaguars new offensive coordinator now that the Ravens hired C Marc Trestman.
However, it looks like the Jaguars preferred to bring in the former Raiders offensive coordinator.
Earlier in the day, Jacksonville added former Bills HC Doug Marrone as their assistant head coach/OL coach.
Jacksonville has a young quarterback in Blake Bortles and some good young receivers to work with, so I’m sure the job was fairly appealing to candidates.
They will need to find some big upgrades for their offensive line in the next few months, as it was one of the team’s largest weaknesses this past season.
Olsen, 51, has spent the past two years with the Oakland Raiders as their offensive coordinator. Before that, he held the same position for Buccaneers from 2009 to 2011.
