Andy Heck to Remain Jaguars Offensive Line Coach, According to Report

According to a tweet from Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, the Jaguars have retained offensive line coach and the longest tenured coach for the team, Andy Heck. Heck has been the offensive line coach for the Jaguars since 2004, and over that span the Jaguars have consistently had one of the stronger run blocking lines in the NFL.

Heck played 12 seasons in the NFL after the Seahawks drafted him in the first round of the 1989 NFL Draft. He played five seasons in Seattle, five seasons for the Chicago Bears and his final two years with the Washington Redskins before retiring after the 2000 season.

Heck then took a job as a graduate assistant coach at the University of Virginia before being promoted to tight ends coach for the 2003 season. He joined the Jaguars staff in 2004 and has now outlasted all of his peers, including former head coach Jack Del Rio.

There was reported interest from the Atlanta Falcons and the Miami Dolphins for the services of Heck. (h/t to Jagsrok9008 for having this news first)
