According to Jason La Canfora, there’s a strong sense within the Jaguars organization that major changes are coming at the end of the 2019 season.
La Canfora writes several members of the coaching staff and front office are concerned about their job security and have begun reaching out around the league to gauge availability for positions with other teams.
Jacksonville is currently in last place in the AFC South and appears to have gone backward from last season. The defense is hemorrhaging yards against the run and QB Nick Foles, signed to a major deal in free agency to start for the Jaguars, has missed eight games with a broken clavicle and is 0-3 in the other games he’s started.
There are questions about how long team president Tom Coughlin will remain in his role with the team, as Jacksonville could be facing a potential rebuild in the coming years.
La Canfora also says members of the coaching staff feel it’s inevitable that the team will fire HC Doug Marrone at the conclusion of the season. La Canfora adds changes could be coming in the front office as well, with GM Dave Caldwell potentially on the chopping block.
La Canfora mentions former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli and Patriots OC Josh McDaniels as two candidates Jacksonville would have interest in if they decide to move on from their current staff.
