Mel Tucker likely to leave Jaguars, per report

Scott Cunningham

After interviewing, and being passed over, for the head coaching position with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the second year in a row, there's a good chance that Mel Tucker is going to explore other options, per a source.

According to ESPN's Jason La Canfora, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive coordinator and assistant head coach Mel Tucker may search for other employment options within the league, as he was passed up for the team's head coaching job for the second year in a row.

Tucker interviewed before the 2012 season, but was passed over by the front office in favor of Mike Mularkey. Mularkey was fired after just one unsuccessful season, giving Tucker another chance to interview for the job, but once again, he was passed over, this time for Gus Bradley.

Tucker, who may feel a little unappreciated at this point, could look to find employment elsewhere within the league. As of yet, he has no interviews, though.
