Jaguars announce coaching staff additions

The Jaguars’ 2010 coaching staff is complete.

The team formally announced six additions via press release Thursday.
We already knew about running backs coach Earnest Byner and defensive line boss Joe Cullen.  Rob Boras will coach tight ends and Ben Albert will work under Cullen in an assistant capacity.  Ron Heller and Matt Griffin have been added as offensive staff assistants.  
For the most part, Jacksonville is maintaining continuity in its coaching staff.  Jack Del Rio is staying on as head coach.  Mel Tucker and Dirk Koetter remain the coordinators.
After a 7-9 season that saw the Jaguars drop their final four games, time will tell if continuity is, indeed, a good thing.

    it seems like a revolving door with that coaching staff.. that is why Del Rio is having so many problems he just cant get it right. So many changes hurt the Jaguars…

    Offensive assistants are coming from Murray State and the CFL. AWESOME. Dirk Koetter must have pictures of Jack or something. The guy is supposed to be a passing game wizard but his only success in the NFL was in 2007 when the Jags were a top 5 rushing team. He was only 6 games over .500 as the head coach at ASU. Mediocrity will be on full display once again Jags fans. ENJOY IT. At least 2011 will be locked out and the Jags will be gone by 2012. Thanks Jack for making the Jags irrelevant in Jacksonville. Sorry Wayne you aren’t a cut throat enough guy to fire his ass. I know what you did to Tom was probably the hardest day of your life but firing Jack wouldn’t have been near as hard as admitting Jacksonville can’t keep the Jaguars will be.

    This is actually one season in which Del Rio has not fired or lost members of his staff. Last season, they chose not to bring back Gregg Williams (and I think he did not want to be back anyways) and we lost Special Teams master Joe DeCameillis. First off, I don’t think Weaver would have allowed for any of the primary coaches to be fired. If anyone Koetter needs to go. His offense has become bland and predictable. But the talent isn’t there to really be a team that flies from endzone to endzone. He is just utalizing his best player, MOJO.
    Taking bets on JDR leading the Jags to the playoffs. Everytime his “hot seat” becomes unbarable, he comes through. And then when his team is a favorite, he doesn’t. Maybe we should have an every-other-year contract with him.

    The reason why Del Rio has lasted this long is for every bad season he turns and has a winning or playoff season. One year 5-11, next year 12-4 and in the playoffs. Up and down, inconsistent. It’s strange that for a Jags team that really isn’t a bottom dweller of the NFL, they sure act like it. Although I must admit, everyone one this team from Weaver all the way down to the waterboy knows that this season is PLAYOFFS and deep PLAYOFFS or BUST. Enough is enough. Play like you’re an NFL team and stop bowing down to the COLTS every freaking year and win the division, screw a wild card. Show and prove.

    Maybe, but that’s insane. I have no idea how a city, a league, a fanbase, or an owner can expect to go deep into the playoffs 1 year into a full out rebuilding project. Year 1: 7-9, 3-3 in the Best Divsion in Football. Year 2: 9-7-10-6, I would be satisfied, Year 3: Deep Playoff Run. The fact of the matter is in the NFL, you could be one injury (MOJO) away from the season being thrown into the drain. So you throw all of your eggs in one basket is asking way too much in the NFL.

    The problem with Del Rio is he can’t sustain anything. Nothing. He had a physical defense in the first four years but he couldn’t sustain it. He had a great rushing offense that made few mistakes in the passing game three seasons ago but the next year we lose half our starters on the OL and can’t run the ball. This year we come out with two rookie tackles and try to throw the ball more. The reason he can’t sustain it is because he is a poor evaluator of coaches. Bottom line. Mike Smith got the job in J-ville because Billick and him are close more so than his coaching ability. Luckily for Jack, Mike Smith could coach. But when you start talking about guys like Tice and Pola and Koetter and the Special teams coach, you start talking about guys Jack gave a job too. Those guys earned nothing but disdain before coming to Jacksonville. Wow, Pola recruited Reggie Bush, which means he missed on MJD. Tice was a rejected head coach, Koetter was a rejected college head coach and the Colts fired our special teams coach last year and this year they end up in the SB. Del Rio can’t hire, can’t motivate, and can’t sustain a winner. Check out his record in the AFC South for cripes sake.

    You don’t have an idea, but I do. The Dolphins went 1-15 in 2007. 1-15, are you kidding me. In 2008 they won their division. Wouldn’t you call 2008 a supposed “rebuilding” year. Denver was “rebuilding” this year and played way beyond expectations. No one expected to Jets to do anything this year with a rookie QB, but they did. No one expected much out of the Bengals, but they won the division. The Titans lost the first six and went made a small playoff push. Every year there is 1-2 teams that’s rebuilding and come and surprise the masses. Sorry just I hold my team to a higher standard. I sick of the “rebuilding” excuse. We’ve been “rebuilding” for 7 years. Maybe you call that insane in you’re world, but my world I call it ACCOUNTABILTY.

    Denver was 8-8 last season. No real progress this year. They had a shot at winning their division. The only rebuilding they did was at QB, where, as it turns out Ortan played better than Cutler. Plus they added a HB, and added vets such as Dawkins and Law, how the hell is that rebuilding?
    Yeah 1-2 teams do come out at surprise. The keyword being surprise. No one EXPECTS them to compete, and you are saying we should expect a deep playoff run. Dolphins won their division in a cinderella story, but last season they came back down to earth. And in their second season revuilding they were what .500? And they called that on pace, because they acknowledged that they over achieved the season before.

    That whole Denver coaching staff was gutted. New QB, rookie RB, shaky Brandon Marshall wanting out, weak defense coming into the season, sorry that’s “rebuilding”. Miami was a cinderella story and the glass slipper fit them quite well. They had a weak schedule. We had a cinderella story schedule this year. A VERY favorable schedule to make the playoffs.But once again drop the ball. I know we had rookies in ket positions, but sorry the schedule was pretty weak, no excuses. Sorry dude we’re going to have to agree on disagree. You can’t convince me otherwise. Hey we’re both passionate Jags fans, it’s all good.
