Jaguars coaching rumors: Jay Gruden could be a candidate again?

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden could be a Jaguars head coaching candidate, again.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will begin their head coaching search to replace Mike Mularkey, who the team fired on Thursday morning, and some names are beginning to surface. One name that hasn't officially appeared just yet but could is Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.

From SB Nation's Bengals blog Cincy Jungle, Josh Kirkendell details why Jay Gruden could be a candidate once again:

This time last year the Jaguars were interested in Jay Gruden, who successfully implemented an entirely new offensive philosophy with a rookie quarterback and without the benefit of an offseason due to the NFL lockout. It peaked people's interest. And despite Gruden reportedly telling Jacksonville that he was interested, no confirmed interview took place and Gruden denied any contact with the Jaguars. Eventually Gruden cited family as his biggest reason for staying with a note that he didn't feel ready to take on the top coaching job.

Gruden was reportedly a candidate last season, despite denying interest, but has garnered a lot of interest again this offseason for head coaching positions. Gruden is credited with the development of quarterback Andy Dalton, who's developed into an efficient quarterback.
