According to a report from Jeff Prosser of 1010XL the Jaguars are planning on interviewing Todd Monken for their vacant OC position.
Monken has been busy in recent days. He reportedly interviewed and was considered for multiple heading coaching positions including in Green Bay and New York (Jets).
Monken is 52 years old and is a long time veteran coach in both the NFL and college. If his name sounds familiar it's because he was the Jaguars WR coach under Jack Del Rio from 2007-2010. After he left Jacksonville, Monken went back to the college ranks and was the OC and QB coach for Oklahoma State from 2011-2012 before taking the head coaching gig at Souther Miss. He returned to the NFL in 2016 with Dirk Koetter in Tampa, where he spent the last three seasons as the offensive coordinator.
He's well known as a guy that likes to push the ball down the field with the passing game. The Buccaneers finished third in the NFL in 2018 in terms of total offense, averaging 415.5 yards per game. That's over 113 yards per game more than the Jaguars in 2018.
If the Jaguars elect to hire Monken, it'll likely mean that the passing attack will take on a different, more aggressive, style in 2019 and beyond.
The Jaguars also interviewed former Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell on Tuesday for the same position. For more on Bevell click here.
