Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Ron Zook says he has not been offered Jaguars special teams coordinator job | jacksonville.com

For most of today, I avoided this rumor because it was barely even that and certainly not a full-fledged report from any media organization. But then Illinois' assistant athletic director/media relations Kent Brown tweeted that former Illinois and Florida Gators coach Ron Zook was in as the Jaguars special teams coordinator. Zook's reply? "Just chatter," he said when I called and told him there was chatter that he had become the Jaguars special teams coordinator

Jeremy Mincey hopes to be back in Jacksonville, won't give the Jaguars a hometown discount | jacksonville.com

Jeremy Mincey had a long road to a season like this year's, just in time for his free agency. In a story in today's Times-Union, Vito Stellino mentioned Mincey won't give the Jaguars a hometown discount. That information came from a conversation we had with Mincey after the season ended. Mincey was asked flatly if the Jaguars would get a hometown discount. "Uh, no," Mincey replied. "There’s no such thing as a hometown discount. It is business."

Jaguars hire Greg Olson to work with QB Blaine Gabbert | jacksonville.com

Quarterback Blaine Gabbert’s development will be critical to the future of the Jaguars organization. On Thursday, head coach Mike Mularkey hired the man who will work most closely with the young quarterback. Mularkey hired Greg Olson as quarterbacks coach and assistant head coach. Olson was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2011. He started in Tampa as the team’s quarterbacks coach in 2008 and was offensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions and St. Louis Rams before that.

A question of continuity

Derek Cox didn’t like what he was hearing last week. Cox, the Jaguars’ fourth-year cornerback, said it wasn’t so much that he had a preconceived notion about the future of Mel Tucker and the core of the team’s defensive coaching staff, but the idea of not playing for Tucker next season . . . Well, Cox said that didn’t feel right.
