The Jacksonville Jaguars will interview former Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman for their vacant offensive coordinator position, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Trestman has already interviewed for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator position and is expected to be a hot commodity for that position in the NFL. Trestman was viewed as an offensive guru before he was hired by the Bears, credited with the resurgent career of Rich Gannon back in his days with the Oakland Raiders.

Trestman also spent time in the CFL as a head coach, winning the Grey Cup and guiding quarterback Anthony Calvillo to back-to-back MVP awards. Trestman, often tabbed as the "quarterback whisperer" also got good production out of Josh McCown at quarterback while Jay Cutler was injured and saw Cutler have arguably his best season statistically in 2014, despite the Bears struggles.

Trestman and Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley have a good relationship, so him interviewing for the job isn't a huge surprise.
