Jaguars add two more coaches

George Yarno AP

Earlier today, we told you that there were multiple reports that DeWayne Walker was leaving his post as head coach at New Mexico State to become defensive backs coach for the Jaguars.

That’s come to pass and the Jaguars have also announced two other members of Gus Bradley’s first coaching staff. Frank Scelfo will be the quarterbacks coach and George Yarno will coach the offensive line.

Scelfo replaces Greg Olsen, who moved to Oakland to become offensive coordinator. He was out of coaching last season, but spent 2010 and 2011 working with Nick Foles as a coach at the University of Arizona. He also spent 11 years as the offensive coordinator at Tulane where he developed J.P. Losman, Shaun King and Patrick Ramsey into NFL prospects. That’s not a bad track record for a guy who is going to have to develop a quarterback in Jacksonville whether it is Blaine Gabbert or someone else.

Yarno spent the last four years coaching the offensive line in Detroit and has extensive collegiate coaching experience as well. Yarno played for the Buccaneers, Falcons, Oilers and Packers during a career most notable for the fact that Yarno kicked an extra point for Tampa in 1983 despite being an offensive lineman.

    3 out of 4 of those QBs were NFL busts. And the forth doesn’t look too great either. Is he gonna develop Gabbert for games or the NFL Combine?

    If you’re wondering, the big, beefy, guy is the line coach.

    “3 out of 4 of those QBs were NFL busts”

    The point being, he developed that many QBs, who had NFL careers, albeit briefly, out of freaking TULANE!

    How many players come out of Tulane to the NFL?

    Again, these are very average coaches. Jags fans, keep your expectations very low.

    These comments are great if a person is curious as to what unemployed carwash workers think about NFL assistant coaching hires.
