Jaguars DC Mel Tucker interviews with Wisconsin

Jaguars defensive coordinator Mel Tucker interviewed with Wisconsin on Friday, according to a report.

The Jacksonville Jaguars look to be headed to a total blow up at the end of the season, but defensive coordinator Mel Tucker may be able to land on his feet. Mel Tucker interviewed with Wisconsin on Friday about their head coaching position, according to a report.

Tucker played college football for Wisconsin and was among the players in Barry Alvarez's first recruiting class. Alvarez is now the school's athletic director and is very familiar with Tucker. Tucker has some college experience working with Michigan State and Ohio State before making the leap to an NFL assistant.

Last season, Tucker served as the Jaguars interim head coach after Jack Del Rio was fired. Originally hired in the 2009 offseason by general manager Gene Smith, the Jaguars defense has been up and down under his leadership. Tucker was in the running to be the Jaguars full time head coach during the search last season.
