The Jacksonville Jaguars are interviewing former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken on Wednesday, according to Jeff Prosser of 1010XL. On his daily morning show, The Drill, Prosser indicated that it didn’t seem to have been reported yet, but sources have told him that the Jaguars were having Monken in for an interview for their vacant offensive coordinator position.
If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Monken spent four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars with Jack Del Rio, from 2007 through 2010 as the team’s wide receivers coach. Monken left after Del Rio was fired and took a job with Oklahoma State as the offensive coordinator and then had a stint as the Southern Miss head coach, where the team improved each season under his watch ending with a 9-5 season and bowl victory with Nick Mullens at quarterback.
Monken made his way back to the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Dirk Koetter, who he worked with with the Jaguars. During his time with the Bucs, their offense from 2016 through 2018 ranked 18th, 9th and 3rd respectively. A lot of those rankings are on the back of the passing game however, as the Bucs were one of the worst teams rushing the football.
