The Jaguars’ search for a new offensive coordinator is starting to take shape.
We heard Tuesday that the team is expected to interview (almost certainly outgoing) 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman for the position opened up by the firing of Jedd Fisch. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that they would like to interview Vikings running backs coach Kirby Wilson for the position as well.
Wilson just completed his first year on Minnesota’s coaching staff and has extensive NFL experience coaching running backs. Before the Vikings, Wilson spent seven years with the Steelers and has also worked for the Cardinals, Patriots, Redskins and Buccaneers.
Wilson has worked with a number of different coaches over the course of his career, but, like Roman, he has never worked with Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley. He also has never spent any time as an offensive coordinator, something that might work against him although the fact that the team wants an interview suggests that previous experience in the job isn’t a prerequisite.
