Some more head coaching candidates for the Jaguars have started to surface.

The Jacksonville Jaguars fired Mike Mularkey on Thursday morning and will now begin their search for a new head coach and some more names have started to surface. San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman is the rumored favorite to land the job, but according to Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports some other names have emerged.

Along with Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, it's rumored that San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan are candidates for the job.

Fangio has been the defensive coordinator for the past two seasons, also serving as the defensive coordinator at Stanford with 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh in 2010. Prior to that he served as a position coach with the Baltimore Ravens and as the defensive coordinator with the Houston Texans from 2002 to 2005.

Mike Nolan is currently the Falcons defensive coordinator, but has extensive NFL experience as a defensive coach and was the head coach of the 49ers from 2005 to 2008.
