Names and rumors continue to swirl as the divisional round of the playoffs rolls on. The Jaguars may not be involved in this year's postseason, but that hasn't kept the team out the news as they search for answers in their coaching staff and on their roster.
Let's check out some of the latest reports and rumors.
According to Adam Schefter the Jaguars have interest in former Texans head coach and long time NFL offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak for their vacant OC position. Kubiak was expected to become the Broncos offensive coordinator, but negotiations reportedly broke down when Kubiak wanted to bring in his own offensive assistants. Over the years Kubiak has employed a zone blocking scheme that has proven effective in most stops for the veteran offensive coach. He's the third coach that has been linked to the job. The Jaguars have also interviewed Darrell Bevell and Todd Monken.
The notoriously inaccurate CBS reporter, Jason La Canfora, published a piece yesterday that claimed the Jaguars and Joe Flacco have mutual interest in each other. Likely the only way for the Jaguars to acquire Flacco would be if the Ravens were to release the 33 year old QB. It would be salary cap suicide for the Jaguars to trade for him with his current contract, thanks to the heaping pile of cash they owe Blake Bortles in 2019. Flacco will be a hot name for teams that are in need of a QB, but his play over the last half decade has been highly underwhelming. An interesting note, however, is that Flacco's last impressive statistical campaign came in 2014 when, you guessed it, Gary Kubiak was his offensive coordinator.
In the same article La Canfora claimed the Jaguars were mulling over some other veteran options including Ryan Tannehill and Nick Foles.
The Jaguars are still in search of a DB coach. They have interest in former Broncos defensive coordinator Joe Woods. This according to Mike Klis of 9 News Denver. Woods seems an ideal candidate for the Jaguars with his recent track record of impressive pass defenses. He's also known for employing a lot of man coverage principles. The Jaguars have run primarily cover three under Todd Wash, but perhaps with the addition of Joe Woods the Jaguars would look to run some more man coverage to play to the strengths of Jalen Ramsey and AJ Bouye.
