Yes, Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin will be getting some attention in the offseason.

Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, Goodwin is expected to interview with the Jaguars this week for the vacancy created when coach Gus Bradley was fired last month.

Last week, the Jaguars interviewed former Jacksonville and Giants coach Tom Coughlin. Other candidates include Buccaneers defensive coordinator Mike Smith, Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Lineham, Bills offensive coordinator/interim head coach Anthony Lynn, and Jaguars interim head coach Doug Marrone.

It’s currently believed that there’s no favorite for the job, given that it’s so early in the process. One key factor undoubtedly will be the plan that each candidate has for the ongoing development of quarterback Blake Bortles.

  1. Just give the job to Coughlin. These “hot” coaching candidates are not going to be the answer (see Gus BRadley). Coughlin was their best coach and for a young team needing structure, he’s the guy.

  2. The knock on Coughlin is his age, that “he can’t relate to the young players.”

    I say to heck with “relating”. The key is to get them to learn their jobs, to not make the big mistake, and to trust each other.

    Ordinarily I’m opposed to hiring retreads, but Coughlin is a proven commodity, and if he wants to give it a go, what the hey. He’s got the rings to back up his talk.

  3. Decent coach or not, but Rooney Rule has this guy on the “top” of every vacancy until they are all filled without Mr. Goodwin.
