Jaguars to hire Frank Scelfo as quarterbacks coach, according to report

Scelfo has worked with several NFL quarterbacks during his career as a collegiate offensive coordinator and quarterback coach.

The Jaguars coaching staff is just about assembled, as one more major piece reportedly fell in place on Wednesday as Pete Roussel of CoachingSearch.com reports that the team has decided to hire former-Arizona Wildcats quarterbacks coach Frank Scelfo to the same position in Jacksonville.

Scelfo, 53, originally was a coach at the prep level for 14 seasons before joining the Tulane Green Wave. After three years with the team, he was promoted to offensive coordinator at Tulane where he worked closely with four different Green Wave quarterbacks that all ended up in the NFL: J.P. Losman, Patrick Ramsey, Shaun King and former-Jaguars quarterback Lester Ricard.

After eight seasons at Tulane, Scelfo was hired as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach of the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. Three seasons later he joined Arizona as a quarterbacks coach and worked with Nick Foles and Matt Scott for two seasons.

However, in 2012 Rich Rodriguez was hired as the head coach of the Wildcats and brought Rod Smith with him from Michigan to coach quarterbacks. Scelfo told Mike Schmitz of the Arizona Daily Wildcat that he didn't want to "take a job to take a job" and instead elected to take a "redshirt year" from coaching.
