Jaguars 2013 Coaching Staff

For those of us fans who have been eagerly following each and every Jaguars hiring this off-season, I present a table with the entire 2013 staff. The table reveals an emphasis on youth, proven success, new ideas, and personal familiarity with one another. The new staff will look to inject energy and innovation into a team which suffered through a woeful 2012 season.

The Take

GM

Gene Smith

Dave Caldwell

Shad Khan got his man in Caldwell; a new, fresh take with a winning resume and a proven eye for talent. Caldwell was successful in Indianapolis and Atlanta.

HC

Mike Mularkey

Gus Bradley

First time up and coming defensive coach with a short yet highly successful resume. He has the personality to inspire and the bravado to be the face of the franchise.

OC

Bob Bratkowski

Jedd Fisch

Fisch is a young coach (36) whose specialty is QB. Will open the offense and throw the ball downfield. Previously OC at UMiami and worked w/ Brad in Seattle.

DC

Mel Tucker

Bob Babich

Early mentor to Bradley at NDSU, spent eight years in Chicago as a LB coach and DC. Offers a more veteran presence on a young staff and will run Bradley's 4-3.

STC

John Bonamego

Mike Mallory

Spent the last four years in the same position for New Orleans. He comes from a LB background as a player and coach.

QB

Greg Olson

Frank Scelfo

After a year off from NCAAF, Scelfo makes his first foray into the pros. Has coached and developed QB including JP Losman, Patrick Ramsey, and Nick Foles.

Andy Heck

George Yarno

Worked with Nick Saban at LSU before stops at Tampa Bay and Detroit. Will be tasked with rebuilding a dismal unit that was a significant part of Jax's offensive woes.

DL

Joe Cullen

Todd Wash

Another bright young defensive mind who has worked extensively with Bradley and is the best choice to implement his schemes on the D line.

LB

Mark Duffner

Mark Duffner

Duffner was retained for his eighth season in Jacksonville. Duffner has been a constant through two coaching changes and is well respected in the NFL.

DB

Tony Oden
