The Jaguars are already scheduled to interview Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley (assuming he doesn’t become the Eagles coach before that happens) and now they’ve received permission to speak to Seattle’s other coordinator.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Jaguars have gotten the go-ahead to speak to Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Bevell has also received interest from the Bears, who are reportedly deciding between a small group of finalists that includes the Seattle coordinator.
With the Jaguars badly in need of a long-term answer at quarterback, it’s not hard to understand their interest in Bevell after the work he did with Russell Wilson this season. Whether it is Blaine Gabbert or someone else, the Jags can’t afford to keep drifting without an answer at the position.
Jacksonville has interviews scheduled Tuesday with Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden. Mel Tucker, their current defensive coordinator, has interviewed for the job and 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman is also reportedly on their wishlist.
