The Jacksonville Jaguars aren't the only team looking to fill coaching positions, but they do have some coaches still on staff who could entice some other teams. Assistant head coach and quarterback coach Greg Olson interviewed with the Oakland Raiders for their vacant offensive coordinator position, according to a report by Pete Roussel.

The Jaguars gave their coaching staff permission to pursue other positions prior to Mike Mularkey's firing, and a couple have gotten interest from other teams.

Olson was hired by the Jaguars as the quarterback coach/assistant head coach in January of 2012, previously having worked with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Olson has 10 years of NFL coaching experience, including six seasons as an offensive coordinator for teams such as the Buccaneers, Detroit Lions, and St. Louis Rams.

Olson, 48, is credited with developing Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman. Under Olson in the 2010 season, Freeman had his best season thus far as an NFL pro.
