Jaguars hire Todd Wash as defensive line coach, according to report

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Wash was considered a defensive coordinator candidate for the Jaguars when Gus Bradley was hired as head coach.

Less than two weeks after Seattle Seahawks defensive line coach, Todd Wash, was considered to be "in strong consideration" for the Jaguars defensive coordinator job, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that he will join the team as the new defensive line coach.

As it is a lateral move for Wash, the hiring had to first be approved by Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, who did okay the move, according to O'Halloran.

Wash, 44, played and coached with Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley at North Dakota State. A former outside linebacker with the Bison, Wash joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a defensive quality control coach after some time coaching at the collegiate level. Bradley was the linebackers coach for the Buccaneers at the time.

He was promoted to defensive line coach and held the position for three seasons, two of which were without Bradley on the coaching staff, before he joined Bradley's defensive staff as the defensive line coach for the Seahawks in 2011.

The Seahawks finished 2012 with the fewest points allowed in the NFL, despite finishing just below the league average in sacks with 36. They finished No. 10 in fewest rushing yards allowed.
