Jaguars coaching rumors: Darrell Bevell, Brian Schottenheimer among the candidates

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Jaguars coaching search is underway and a number of current coordinators are among the list of potential candidates.

The Jacksonville Jaguars started their coaching search a bit later than other teams, but new general manager David Caldwell has already begun interviewing candidates.

Caldwell interviewed current Jaguars defensive coordinator Mel Tucker on Monday and was scheduled to meet with Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden on Tuesday. While Tucker and Schottenheimer have been off the head coaching radar this offseason, Gruden has interviewed with a couple of other teams including Arizona and Philadelphia.

The Jaguars are also reportedly interested in both Seattle coordinators and have interviews scheduled with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. There is a chance neither will make it to Jacksonville as both are finalists for other jobs. Bevell is one of three finalists in Chicago while Bradley is considered to be the favorite in Philadelphia.

The list of potential candidates could expand to include San Francisco offensive coordinator Greg Roman and defense coordinator Vic Fangio, but Jacksonville is unable to interview either until after the NFC Championship game.
