David Caldwell has third interview with Jaguars

The Jaguars were putting out word that their process wasn’t going to be a fast one, but they’re already talking to one candidate for a third time.

Albert Breer of the NFL Network reports that Falcons director of player personnel David Caldwell has a third interview scheduled with the Jaguars today.

If he ends up with the job, the next question will be whether he has a coaching change in mind.

Jags coach Mike Mularkey met with owner Shad Khan last week, and was told the owner was leaning toward keeping him, but was going to get input from the new GM first.

That would allow it to be a “it’s not me, it’s him,” as opposed to a “it’s not you, it’s me,” and leaves the door open for Khan to make a change.

  1. It’s not that simple Mularkey was already on his way out in ATL and there are connections that Caldwell wants his own guy and that guy could be Roman the OC from SF.

  2. “Jags coach Mike Mularkey met with owner Shad Khan last week, and was told the owner was leaning toward keeping him, but was going to get input from the new GM first.”

    This is the only report that shows them leaning toward keeping him.

    The local media in Jacksonville excepts Mularkey to be fired.

    Most of the national media (Peter King, Schefter) expect Mularkey to be fired.

    Why else would the team give him assistants the ok to seek other jobs?

  3. Doesn’t seem like a tough choice for Caldwell. Do you keep the guy who just went 2-14 and was about to be run out of town by your old team or hire your college roommate who’s done a good job giving the Niners some offense to go with their defense? Either way, it’ll be on Caldwell to find some talent or it won’t matter.

  4. Nobody knows anything yet.
    I think Mularkey’s offense is very interesting (kinda reminds me of Sam Wyche) and I’d like to see more of it.
    But who knows?
    Tebow, if he arrives, wouldn’t beat Palmer for third string. He simply doesn’t have the chops.
