The Jacksonville Jaguars fired longtime head coach Jack Del Rio during the 2011-12 season and they've already on the move interviewing multiple candidates for their open head coaching job. Reports have them requesting permission to interview Mike Mularkey of the Atlanta Falcons and Rob Chudzinski of the Carolina Panthers.
The latest name connected to the Jags job -- Brian Schottenheimer. The New York Jets offensive coordinator will interview with Jacksonville for the head coaching job, according to Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News.
Schottenheimer is believed to be on the hot seat in New York, despite what Rex Ryan says, so he may be leaving either way.
Schottenheimer certainly has the family pedigree to be a head coach. His dad, Marty Schottenheimer, was a longtime NFL head coach who was very successful.
