Report: Growing belief around NFL that Tom Coughlin could coach Jags in 2019

Report: Growing belief around NFL that Tom Coughlin could coach Jags in 2019 Tom Coughlin’s second year as the executive vice president of football operations for the Jacksonville Jaguars will ultimately be considered a failure, and speculation is growing that he could end up taking on much more responsibility with the team after the season. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there is a “growing perception around the NFL” that the Jaguars could make sweeping changes after their horrendous 2018 season, and one of them would be replacing Doug Marrone with Coughlin.

The Jaguars somehow found a way to top their 9-6 loss to the Titans earlier this year, by getting plowed 30-9 by the Titans last night.

While they scored more points, it was hard to call it an offensive improvement, amid all the changes they’ve made on that side of the ball.

At least Jaguars coach Doug Marrone knows more changes are coming.

“They have us right now,” Marrone said of the Titans, via Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. “It’s the last time we play them this year, and next year it will be a different team.”

He might have been speaking of the offense in particular, but there’s no reason to think they’d stop there. The Jaguars have followed last year’s AFC Championship Game run with a complete flop, falling to 4-9 in the most embarrassing fashion.

Nate Hackett on his firing: ‘It’s a shock’

Nate Hackett on his firing: ‘It’s a shock’ Nate Hackett discusses his firing with Ian Rapoport, which seeming was a surprise him.

He knew he was a good football coach. He felt good about what his teams did in Syracuse and Marrone 's next big moment in front of the cameras came in late December 2016, when Jaguars coach Gus Marrone and Coughlin were on the same page with the changes in the Jaguars ' locker room.

Doug Marrone and Tom Coughlin both have historically had 4-3 defenses when News came out late last week that the Jaguars interviewed former San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly prior I’m sure everyone knows my feelings on positions you should and shouldn’t pick in the Top 10 in the NFL

Marrone has already offered up offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett (who has been with him for years, going back to Syracuse), and they benched Blake Bortles. But nothing replacement play-caller Scott Milanovich or backup quarterback Cody Kessler could muster was going to fix an offense that’s missing a number of key starters.

They’re down to their fourth left tackle (Ereck Flowers, oy), and their starting left guard and center are on IR, along with wide receiver Marqise Lee and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

But mostly what they’re missing is direction. That could change too.
