LIVE: Jags Coaching Search

As time has worn on, the picture of the Jaguars coaching search has become a little muddled unless you follow a lot of sources closely. So I wanted to post this brief summary (SAT. 1/22) for us to have a comments section going forward to post any news or updates.

Top Candidates

As of Saturday 1/22, there are 3 names that have emerged in most reporting as the likely finalists:

Byron Leftwich

  • Offensive Coordinator (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
  • former Jaguars QB (2003-2006)
  • Age: 42
  • Defensive Coordinator (Indianapolis Colts)
  • former Cowboys LB coach (2011-2017)
  • Age: 51
  • Offensive Coordinator (Green Bay Packers)
  • former Jaguars QB Coach (2015-16) and OC (2016-18)
  • Age: 42
Matt Eberflus has had a 2nd interview. Leftwich and Hackett both remain in the Playoffs for now, but are rumored to likely be interviewed again by JAX.

Others Previously Reported*

Darrell Bevell
Jim Caldwell
Doug Pederson
Kellen Moore
Bill O’Brien
Todd Bowles
Dan Quinn

*The only candidates in this list still possibly in play appear to be Caldwell and Pederson. The rest either did not interview, or reportedly are not in contention as finalists.
