Texans might keep Romeo Crennel as HC next season?

  Texans might keep Romeo Crennel as HC next season? Crennel, 73, has been viewed as a placeholder for 2020, but he could retain the gig through the 2021 season.Crennel, 73, has been viewed as a placeholder for 2020, but he could retain the gig through the 2021 season, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com writes. COVID-19 restrictions will probably not permit a traditional in-person search this offseason, so teams hiring a new head coach could be committing a boatload of money to a person they have never even met. As such, the Texans might stick with Crennel next season and seek their long-term answer the following year. If that happens, VP of football operations Jack Easterby may continue serving as GM.

The Jaguars have hired Doug Marrone to be the new head coach . "I have confidence that one day soon we'll look back on today's news as the moment that inspired and ultimately established the Jacksonville Jaguars as a football team that wins, week to week and season to season," Jaguars

After the game, Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone was asked if he’s considered making a change with defensive coordinator Todd Wash. If the Jaguars keep losing the way they have over the last five weeks, there will be plenty of people questioning how much longer Marrone should be deciding

The Jacksonville Jaguars are trudging through yet another season as a bottomfeeder of the AFC standings. They currently sit at 1-10 on the year. Three different quarterbacks have started for the Jags in 11 games. Gardner Minshew, once viewed as some type of shiny rock found in the rough of the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, has been firmly planted on the sideline after hurting his thumb. Forced to start Mike Glennon this past Sunday, the Jags lost their 10th game of the season to the Cleveland Browns.

General manager Dave Caldwell paid the price soon after. Jacksonville announced it had fired Caldwell at 5:30 p.m. ET, less than two hours after the end of the Browns-Jaguars game. The decision brings an end to a seven-year run by Caldwell at the helm of the Jaguars, although he worked under Tom Coughlin for a few of those years. Given Jacksonville finished above .500 exactly once in those seven years, it's a bit of a surprise he lasted this long.

Doug Pederson seat getting hotter as Eagles put up another stinker

  Doug Pederson seat getting hotter as Eagles put up another stinker To be fair, not all of this is on Pederson. Heck, Wentz deserves a lot of the blame. His accuracy has just not been up to snuff thus far this season. He’s also not seeing the field as well as in the past, leading to struggles throwing from the pocket.It’s also important to note that the Eagles have dealt with numerous injuries to their offensive line and at the skill positions. Missing the likes of Lane Johnson, Miles Sanders, Zach Ertz, DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery for multiple games has not helped matters at all.These are excuses.

Doug Marrone will return as head coach next season, Jaguars owner Shad Khan announced on Tuesday. In addition to Marrone returning, his entire While our discussions will remain confidential, the decision I am making to keep our staff intact for 2020 has nothing to do with our victory on Sunday

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson gives cryptic answer regarding Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz's starting status. NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala discusses how Pittsburgh Steelers players will likely react to Week 12 vs. Baltimore Ravens game being moved to Sunday.

The same feeling could be extended to head coach Doug Marrone, who kept his job despite Caldwell's dismissal on Sunday. The Jags did not induce a house-cleaning of the most thorough type like the Detroit Lions did a day prior when they fired GM Bob Quinn and HC Matt Patricia. They gave Caldwell his pink slip, but kept Marrone around. It is not the first time Marrone survived a round of layoffs, and it's remarkable that he remains employed.

Marrone was brought on as an offensive line coach in 2015. By December 2016, he found himself as the interim head coach once Gus Bradley was fired. Interim head coaches rarely succeed in any capacity, given the nature of how they got the position in the first place. But Marrone did, doing enough to convince Jacksonville to hire him as the full-time head coach after the season ended. This was the same time they brought in Coughlin.

Mike Tomlin has funny response to question about ‘trap game’

  Mike Tomlin has funny response to question about ‘trap game’ The Steelers appear to have an easy game on paper against the 1-8 Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but Tomlin knows better than to overlook the AFC South squad. © Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin Tomlin was asked Tuesday about the possibility of the Jags being a “trap game” and scoffed at that notion. “We are not a Big Ten team playing a MAC opponent this week,” Tomlin said. The Steelers coach noted that the Jags are trying to kick their behinds.His point about not underestimating an opponent is well-taken, especially in the NFL, which is full of talented players.

"I have met on several occasions over the past few days with Dave Caldwell, Doug Marrone and their staffs to fully understand their plans to reverse our Instead, both Marrone and Caldwell will report to Khan directly in a similar fashion to how they operated since Coughlin's departure in mid-December.

Jacksonville Jaguars Coaches Roster: The official source of the latest Jaguars coaches roster and team Doug Marrone was named the fifth full-time head coach of the Jaguars on Jan. In three seasons as the head coach of the Jaguars , Marrone has coached six players to nine Pro Bowl

That 2017 season, Marrone's first as head coach, was the best Jaguars season since the days of Byron Leftwich. The team got all the way to the AFC Championship Game with a lead in the fourth quarter before falling to the New England Patriots. It turned out to be a flash in the pan in the truest of senses, as everything fell apart in 2018 and most of the key contributors to that playoff run were gone by 2019. Coughlin was sent on his way. The Jaguars continued to lose games.

And yet, Marrone has stuck around. All the more power to him. Keeping an NFL head coaching job even though his team has come in dead-last in the division in three of four years under his guidance is a difficult achievement.

It does make one wonder exactly what ownership sees in Marrone, though. He had that one good year, but otherwise hasn't shown much of anything that would suggest he's the man to lead the franchise into a new era of winning football. Perhaps they didn't want to fire him like Caldwell because firing a head coach midseason is far more disruptive for the players than firing a general manager. He could very well be on his way out the door as soon as Week 17 is concluded.

Raheem Morris making significant push to be Falcons head coach in 2021?

  Raheem Morris making significant push to be Falcons head coach in 2021? Given Morris' relationship with the organization and the team’s recent success, he should be considered a strong candidate to be the head coach in 2021. While the head coaching search draws much of the attention, the Falcons are reportedly focusing on a general manager right now. According to La Canfora, the team will begin conducting interviews next month.Several of the candidates being considered aren’t currently employed by NFL teams, allowing Atlanta to immediately speak with them. While there are several strong names, former Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith is among the leading candidates.

HC Doug Marrone a day after the Jaguars ’ eighth loss in the last nine games: “I just keep going as hard as I can until Job security. Marrone was asked late Friday afternoon if he had discussed his with either Owner Shad Khan or Executive Vice President of Football Operations Tom Coughlin.

The Jags are reaching the point where they have to seriously consider doing that, no matter how much they appear to like Marrone. They will be picking in the top three of the draft, barring an unforeseen end-of-season winning streak, which finally gives them a chance at a top-tier quarterback prospect after a few seasons of drafting just low enough to miss out on such prospects. Whether it be Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, or Trey Lance, the Jaguars will be picking a QB of the future come April.

Is Marrone the right man to tutor that quarterback and lead the organization to the success they've been failing to achieve for the better part of this century? His recent track record suggests not, but the front office may think he is. Their recent track record suggests that's the case.
