The Jacksonville Jaguars will be hiring Greg Olson as their offensive coordinator, according to a report by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
The Jags are hiring Greg Olson to be their offensive coordinator. The market is thinning out of the best candidates— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 20, 2015
We reported that the Jaguars were working to sign Olson on their staff in some capacity, so it appears he will be the offensive coordinator and the team either didn't offer Adam Gase the position or he turned it down on his way to interview with the Baltimore Ravens.

If the name is familiar, it's because Olson spent a season as the Jaguars assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach under Mike Mularkey, and infamously was credited with calling former Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert "Blame Gabbert" when he left the team.
Olson has been a coach in the NFL at some capacity since the 2001 season, when he was the quarterbacks coach for the San Francisco 49ers. He has experience as an offensive coordinator previously with the Detroit Lions, St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
