The Jacksonville Jaguars will interview two coordinators from Seattle as they search for their next head coach. On Tuesday, the Jaguars received permission to interview Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is already scheduled to interview on Wednesday.
Bevell, 43, has been the offensive coordinator for the last two seasons in Seattle. Under Bevell, the Seahawks finished the 2012 season as the ninth-ranked scoring offense in the NFL, scoring an average of 25.8 points per game. Prior to his time in Seattle he spent five seasons as the offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings, guiding them to the second-best scoring offense in the league in 2009. Bevell is considered one of the three finalists for the Chicago Bears head coaching job.
Bradley, 46, just finished his fourth season as the Seahawks defensive coordinator. The Seattle defense improved greatly under Bradley's control, from 25th in his first season in 2009 to best in the league in 2012 in terms of scoring defense, holding opponents to 15.3 points per game. Bradley is considered to be the top candidate to replace Andy Reid in Philadelphia.
