Keenan McCardell To Interview For Jaguars Coaching Position, Source Says

New, comments

The Jacksonville Jaguars are attempting to fill out their offensive coaching staff after filling in some pieces on the defensive side of the staff. Bob Bratkowski was hired as the team's offensive coordinator, but they still need some other positions. A source close to the team tells me that the Jaguars will interview former Jaguars wide receiver and Washington Redskins wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell on Monday.

McCardell got his first shot at coaching wide receivers in the 2010 East West Shrine Game, McCardell was hired by the Washington Redskins as their wide receivers coach. McCardell spent two seasons as the Redskins wide receivers coach before being released at the end of the 2011 NFL season. As a player, McCardell spent six seasons with the Jaguars forming one of the premier wide receiver tandems in the NFL, pairing with Jimmy Smith to be "Thunder and Lightning". McCardell was know for his route running and the ability find soft spots in zone coverage.
