Jaguars interviewing Mike Nolan for position coach gig

As it turns out, Chip Kelly’s not the only former 49ers head coach interviewing with the Jaguars.

According to Alex Marvez of the Sporting News, Mike Nolan has talked to the Jaguars about a linebackers coach job.

Nolan, 57, coached linebackers for the Chargers last year, after a three-year stint as defensive coordinator for the Falcons.

He had an 18-37 record with the 49ers and was fired midway through the 2008 season. That’s still better than the 2-14 Kelly put on the board last year in his one year in San Francisco. He has interviewed for the Jacksonville offensive coordinator job.

The Jaguars are also adding former Clemson assistant coach Marion Hobby to work with their defensive line, but he never coached the 49ers.

So if anyone knows where Jim Tomsula is at the moment, let us know.

  1. “Nolan, 57, coached linebackers for the Chargers last year, after a three-year stint as defensive coordinator for the Falcons.”

    You should clarify this to say “for the Chargers in 2015” because I’m sure I’m not the only one who saw “last year” and thought 2016. Nolan was out of coaching in 2016 and was working for SiriusXM NFL radio.

  2. that’s a hell of a fall from grace.. head coach to now a position coach? i thought he was a good defensive coordinator?

  3. If it gets him off that NFL Network show, go for it…in fact, take that idiot Heath with you.
