A name associated with the Jaguars search for a new head coach in 2012 is still one that the team is interested one year later, as CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported on air that the Jaguars hope to interview Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy for their head coaching position in the event that the Broncos lose on Saturday to the Baltimore Ravens.

McCoy, 40, played quarterback for the Utah Utes before short stints with the Broncos, Packers and 49ers in the NFL along with time in NFL Europe and the Canadian Football League. Following retirement from his playing days, McCoy became an offensive assistant for the Carolina Panthers and rose through the ranks, eventually becoming the team's quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator.

He joined the Broncos in 2009 as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. After acquiring Peyton Manning in the offseason, the Broncos finished the 2012 season with a 13-3 record and the NFL's No. 2 ranked scoring offense. The Broncos are scheduled to kickoff a divisional round game against the Ravens at 4:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
