The Jaguars have made major changes to their coaching staff and their scouting department thus far this offseason. A few, however, have been in silence including the team parting ways with former director of player personnel Chris Polian before hiring former San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke to replace Polian.
Now, the Jaguars will be without senior defensive assistant Dom Capers after the Minnesota Vikings accounted yesterday they intend to add the 72-year old to their staff in the same role.
Capers first joined the Jaguars just prior to 2019 with the expectations to lending an experienced ear to defensive coordinator Todd Wash after a somewhat down 2018 campaign. Capers was originally with the Jaguars as the team’s defensive coordinator with former Jaguars head coach and executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin in 1999 until the two reunited last season.
It is not yet known whether or not the Jaguars will fill Capers’ role or not as Doug Marrone continues to finalize his 2020 coaching staff.
Another change which has seemingly flown under the radar was reported yesterday by ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. According to Raanan, Jaguars college scout Chris Snee met with the Miami Dolphins on Monday regarding a role in their scouting department. Snee originally joined the team along with Coughlin in 2017 as a scout specializing in offensive linemen.
Former Giants OL Chris Snee is currently meeting with the Dolphins on Monday about a role in their scouting department, per source.

With Coughlin gone, it looks as if Snee will follow — another change along the Jaguars front office which has been under scrutiny as of late.
