Jaguars coaching search roundup: Interviews under way

New, comments

With the hiring of Mike McCoy in San Diego, the Jaguars are now one of four NFL teams without a head coach, but they are in the midst of a search to fill the vacancy.

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Darrell Bevell

Adam Schefter dropped a new name into the mix for the Jaguars on Tuesday when he reported that the Jaguars will interview the offensive coordinator of the Seahawks. He has also been considered one of three finalists for the Bears head coaching job and has a second interview with the team scheduled for Tuesday.

Gus Bradley

The Seahawks defensive coordinator has generated some head coaching interest in the last week and is said to be a finalist for the job with the Eagles. Albert Breer of NFL Network reported on Monday night Bradley has an interview scheduled with the Jaguars this week, although it's possible that he could accept the Eagles job before the time comes for that interview.

Mel Tucker

The Jaguars defensive coordinator would certainly be a surprising choice for head coach, although he was interviewed for the job on Monday. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Tucker is likely to become the new defensive coordinator of the Browns, in the likely event that John Pagano can't get out of his contract with the Chargers.

Brian Schottenheimer

The Rams offensive coordinator is reportedly meeting with the Jaguars on Tuesday. He was a candidate for the team's head coaching job in 2011 as well and after a relatively strong season for the Rams offensively in his first season under control, there's not much reason to believe that he isn't a legitimate candidate.

Jay Gruden

The Bengals offensive coordinator has received interest from a number of teams, but many of those spots have been filled and there are only a few more potential landing spots for Gruden. Among them are Jacksonville where he is set to interview on Tuesday, but Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer says that the Cardinals are still in play.

Greg Roman/Vic Fangio/Jim Tomsula

Many consider Roman, the offensive coordinator of the 49ers, to be the favorite for the Jacksonville job and he would certainly appear to be the fan favorite, but the Jaguars haven't been able to have an interview with him yet. The same goes for 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula and any other assistants of teams that will play in the conference championships this weekend.
