Jaguars Coaching Search: Pete Carmichael Jr.

Over the course of the next few weeks, I'm going to examine some of the potential head coaching candidates for the soon to be vacant Jacksonville Jaguars head coaching position. The next candidate we will look at is New Orleans Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. Carmichael is the current offensive coordinator for the Saints, who have arguably the best offense in the entire NFL. Now, it makes life easier as a coordinator if you have Drew Brees at the quarterback position.

Carmichael has been an offensive coach in the NFL since 2000, serving as an offensive assistant/quality control coach for the Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, and the San Diego Chargers before being the wide receivers coach in San Diego from 2004-2005. In 2006, Carmichael was hired as the quarterbacks coach/passing game coordinator for the New Orleans Saints, taking over as the offensive coordinator in 2009 when Doug Marrone left to be the head coach of Syracuse. The big question when looking at Carmichael is how much he's involved in actually calling plays, because from the looks and sounds of it, head coach Sean Payton still does the offensive play calling. Carmichael has been involved in one of the most productive passing offenses the NFL has ever seen, however.
