Jaguars hire Mike Mallory as special teams coordinator

After five seasons on the staff of the Saints, Mike Mallory is the new special teams coordinator of the Jaguars.

The Jaguars announced today that new head coach Gus Bradley added Mallory to his staff.

Mallory was a two-time All-Big Ten linebacker at Michigan in the 1980s (while another Mallory was making America laugh on Family Ties), and since then he has spent 27 years coaching, primarily in college.

Mallory comes from a coaching family: His father Bill Mallory was head coach at Indiana, Colorado, Northern Illinois and Miami of Ohio, his brother Curt is the secondary coach at Michigan, and his brother Doug is the defensive coordinator/assistant head coach at Indiana.
