The Jacksonville Jaguars turned to the college ranks for their offensive coordinator, hiring Miami Hurricanes offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.

Gus Bradley hired someone he's worked with before to be his offensive coordinator with the Jacksonville Jaguars, bringing in the University of Miami's offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fisch had previously worked alongside Bradley when Bradley was defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks and Fisch was the team's quarterbacks coach in 2010. This is Fisch's first coordinator job in the NFL, having served as an assistant coach in various roles with the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos as well as many college teams. His Hurricanes averaged 31.4 points per game this past year, the team's best output since 2008.

Fisch faces an uphill battle with the Jaguars. They averaged just 15.4 points per game this past season with Blaine Gabbert as the starting quarterback and Chad Henne filling in when Gabbert was injured. The team's offense was basically just Maurice Jones-Drew, but the running back wasn't healthy for most of the season as the team went 2-14. They'll have the second pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
