Jay Gruden is the "Favorite" For Jaguars Head Coaching Job, According to Report

While there has yet to be a report that the Jaguars have requested, or plan to request an interview with Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden there are plenty of reports of interest from the Jaguars. Most recently from NFL Network's Albert Breer who reports that Gruden is "the favorite" to be the head coach for the Jaguars in 2012.

Three of the five offensive coordinators that will reportedly have interviews with the Jaguars come from playoff teams, so while Gruden is obviously getting prepared for the Bengals game against the Texans this weekend, it is still well within the rules for the Jaguars to request and arrange an interview with Gruden.

After serving as an offensive assistant for his brother Jon Gruden in Tampa Bay for seven seasons, Jay Gruden became the offensive coordinator for the UFL's Florida Tuskers in 2009 following his brother's firing. The following year he became the head coach and general manager of the Tuskers after head coach Jim Haslett was hired by the Redskins as defensive coordinator.

On Feb. 3, 2011 Gruden was hired as offensive coordinator of the Bengals and just under three months later was given the task of working with rookie Andy Dalton at quarterback. The Bengals finished the regular season with the 20th ranked offense, 20th ranked pass offense and 19th ranked rush offense.
