Per Caldwell/Bradley Introductory Press Conference, Jags will look to College Ranks for offensive coordinator

Just like I predicted yesterday, Dave Caldwell said he would not rule out looking to the college ranks to find an innovative up-and-coming play caller to take over the Jaguars anemic offense next year. I like that idea, some of the greatest offensive minds of recent times have come out of college and many NFL teams are implementing previous college concepts related to the spread such as the pistol and the read option into NFL offensive game plans. But there are three names to look at in particular that the Jaguars could look to take over the reins of the offense. Look out for these three guys.

*Doug Nussmeir- the former Rams QB coach in the Marc Bulger years and current Alabama offensive coordinator and play caller is considered by many as an extremely bright coach and a superb teacher of the game with great offensive concepts. He has expressed a strong desire to make the return trip to the NFL. He'd be a great hire. He could also set us up to take AJ McCarron in the draft next season.

*Pep Hamilton-Andrew Luck's former Stanford offensive coordinator is a longtime veteran of the NFL and has already interviewed for the Jets offensive coordinator position and is primed to interview with our rival Colts. He's an intriguing name with a great background. He'd make a great coordinator in Jax.

*Noel Mazzone-the current UCLA offensive coordinator under Jim Mora, Gus Bradley's old boss, is a terrific offensive mind with a long resume with many different teams. He has completely rejuvenated a pathetic UCLA offense and added different dimensions to it. He also has NFL experience with the Jets. He'd be a great pick. He's primed for the next big step into the NFL. Plus he may get a glowing recommendation from Gus's old boss.

All these guys would make for great hires and look for their names as Caldwell and Bradley conduct the formal interview process. I'd like to hear you guys' thoughts and any college coordinators you would like to see. Thank you
