According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Jaguars have agreed to terms with Press Taylor to become the team's next offensive coordinator.
As soon as Doug Pederson was named head coach in Jacksonville, Taylor, 34, was immediately the front runner for the offensive coordinator job, with no other candidates even being named.
Taylor and Pederson worked together in Philadelphia from 2016-2020, where the Eagles enjoyed plenty of success, including three playoff runs and a Super Bowl title.
Following a disappointing 2020 campaign, Pederson was in favor of promoting Press Taylor from passing game coordinator and QBs coach to offensive coordinator, but Eagles' owner Jeffrey Lurie had other plans. Ultimately, that difference in vision led to Pederson being fired.
While Doug Pederson took the 2021 season off, Press Taylor reunited former Eagles' offensive coordinator Frank Reich in Indy as a senior offensive assistant.
Doug Pederson will call plays in Jacksonville, while Taylor will handle the other duties associated with the offensive coordinator position.
