Jaguars Moving On From OC John DeFilippo


According to Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars are moving from OC John DeFilippo after just one season. 

The team announced the two sides are parting ways in a mutual decision. It’s somewhat of a surprising move given that DeFilippo had done strong work with Jaguars rookie QB Gardner Minshew this year.

DeFilippo, 41, began his NFL coaching career with the Giants back in 2005. He spent two years with the Giants before the Raiders hired him as their quarterbacks coach in 2007.

After a brief stint with the Jets, DeFilippo returned to the Raiders and was later hired by the Browns as their offensive coordinator in 2015. Unfortunately, the Browns fired their coaching staff after one season and he later agreed to coach the Eagles quarterbacks in 2016.

The Vikings hired DeFilippo as their offensive coordinator back in 2018, replacing Pat Shurmur. However, he was fired midseason. Jacksonville signed him at the start of 2019. 

In 2019, the Jaguars offense ranked No. 20 in total yards, No. 26 in points scored, No. 17 in rushing yards per game and No. 16 in passing yards per game.
