The Jaguars are casting a fairly wide net when it comes to interviews for their next head coach.

Not only have they requested interviews with two coordinators from the Buccaneers, but they’ve also done the same with the Cowboys.

According to multiple reports, Jacksonville has requested permission to interview Dallas offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

Moore began his tenure as the Cowboys’ quarterbacks coach just after ending his playing career in 2018. He was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2019 under Jason Garrett and stayed in the same role under Mike McCarthy in 2020. The Cowboys are currently No. 2 in total offense and in scoring.

Quinn compiled a 43-42 record as the Falcons head coach from 2015-2020. He has helped vastly improve Dallas’ defense in 2021, which is currently No. 7 in points allowed and No. 19 in yards allowed, but first with 33 takeaways.

Two more candidates on the Jaguars’ radar, per NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, are former Eagles head coach Doug Pederson and Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus. Pelissero reports Jacksonville is slated to interview Pederson this week.

  1. Do these guys realize they’ll be working for Trent Baalke? He has control over the roster. Remember how poorly that worked out in SF. It’ll be like the Texans coach who has to listen to Caserio tell him what to do in games. I don’t care who it is, nobody should take this job. The Jags are perennial losers and will continue to be. This is a coach-killing job thanks to Khan and his propensity to hire people who are incompetent.

  2. Moore will be the most in demand of all the NFL assistants, and can have his pick of teams. Unless Jerruh tells him he’s canning MM and he sticks around to be the Cowboys HC, he will have his pick of teams. And does anyone really think that pick would be the Jags?

  3. It will really annoy me if Dan Quinn gets a HC gig so soon. As is the Dallas tradition, our competent coordinators get snatched and our mediocre HC stays until he’s finally fired.

    Any respectable coach won’t put themselves in that position.
