According to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, the Jacksonville Jaguars will hire Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers coach Mike Sheppard as their quarterbacks coach. This will be the second time in a few weeks the Jaguars will fill their quarterbacks coach position. Current Carolina Panthers quarterbacks coach Mike Shula was on the Jaguars staff, but his contract expired and he chose to go elsewhere. The Jaguars then promoted wide receivers coach Todd Monken to Shula's old position, but earlier in the week Monken took the offensives coordinator position at Oklahoma State.
Mike Sheppard served as the Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers coach for four seasons and has 17 total seasons of coaching experience, including head coaching positions at Long Beach State and New Mexico. He also has experience as an NFL offensive coordinator with the San Diego Chargers (97-98), Buffalo Bills (01), and New Orleans Saints (05). He was the quarterbacks coach with the Saints from 2002-2005 and helped in the development of Aaron Brooks. He was also the quarterbacks coach with the Seattle Seahawks from 1999-2000.
The Jaguars are expected to officially announce the move on Monday.
