NFL coaching rumors: Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell interested in Josh McDaniels

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell is reportedly interested in bringing in New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels as the team's new head coach, according to Sam Farmer of

"Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell is believed to be interested in [Josh] McDaniels, so the Los Angeles Rams being on the hunt for a coach could impact how the Jaguars deal with Gus Bradley."

At this point, a broom would be a replacement over Bradley, who is 14-47 in four seasons with the Jaguars and is statistically the worst head coach in the NFL's modern era.

But to McDaniels' credit he's shown the ability to adapt to any personnel, as now the Patriots run a more horizontal, deliberate scheme aimed at getting the ball quickly out of the quarterback's hands. He was cited as too immature and frequently clashed with his players and front office in his first go around as a head coach, but a few more years of maturity and wisdom could have alleviated those concerns. McDaniels with a high variance Jaguars offense and proven playmakers on defense could be a fun thing to watch in 2017.
