The news about the Jaguars open coaching positions is flying in fast and furious...though still no word on offensive coordinator. Right after Alex Marvez reported that Marion Hobby was joining the Jaguars, he also reported that Mike Nolan is interviewing with the team as well.
As Marvez notes, Nolan is expected to be interviewing with the Jaguars to be their linebackers coach. As Marvez also mentions, Nolan is currently out of football, and has been working on radio and television instead.
Nolan’s most recent coaching gig was in 2015, when he was in San Diego serving as the Chargers linebackers coach. Before that, Nolan spent three years as the Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator. He was also a defensive coordinator the three years before that, spending one season with the Denver Broncos and two seasons with the Miami Dolphins. The four years prior to that saw Nolan’s most prominent gig, when he was the San Francisco 49ers head coach, accruing an overall record of 18-37. Before he became a head coach, Nolan held a variety of posts at both the collegiate and professional levels, serving as the defensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets, Washington Redskins, and the New York Giants. Before those posts, Nolan was a linebackers coach at Stanford, Louisiana State, and the Denver Broncos, the latter of which he also spent time as a special teams coach.
