Jacksonville Jaguars Making Unexpected Coaching Change
The Jacksonville Jaguars are making an unexpected coaching change.
Just days after John DeFilippo’s departure, it appears the organization has a new offensive coordinator in its sights.
Former New York Giants head coach Bob McAdoo.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, McAdoo interviewed for the position earlier this week.
Although many may now associate him with his failed stint as a head coach, McAdoo was actually a very successful offensive mind prior to that.
In his last two years as an offensive coordinator with the Giants, the team boasted top 10 offenses.
Prior to landing in New York, he served as an offensive assistant with the Green Bay Packers.
The #Jaguars have interviewed former #Giants head coach Ben McAdoo for their vacant offensive coordinator job, sources say. In his last two years as OC with NYG, he had Top 10 offenses — ranked 6th in scoring in 2015. He also led the Giants to the playoffs in 2016.

In 2019 Jacksonville ranked twenty sixth in the league in scoring, so a change of some sort is desperately needed.
Regardless of whether the team plays Nick Foles or Gardner Minshew at quarterback, there was a very legitimate play calling issue that needs to be addressed in the new year.
A final decision on who will be the Jaguars’ new offensive coordinator should be announced at some point over the next week.
