Word over the weekend was that the Jaguars would hold a remote interview with Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles this week and it has reportedly taken place.

Mark Long of the Associated Press reports that Bowles spoke with the team on Monday. He joins former Eagles head coach Doug Pederson and former Colts and Lions head coach Jim Caldwell as candidates that have met with the team.

Bowles joins Pederson and Caldwell in having previous head coaching experience. He went 24-40 over four seasons with the Jets before getting fired after the 2018 season. Bowles joined Bruce Arians’ staff in Tampa the next year and jumped back into head coaching conversations thanks to the team’s success last year.

Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore are also on the Jaguars’ radar. Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reported last Sunday that Moore is expected to interview remotely late next week.

  1. I can guarantee you the wrong question is being asked in the interviews. “You think you are going to like me and let me make ALL the personnel decision?” – Baulk. As opposed to hiring the BEST football head coach and Khan demanding the GM works in harmony with him.

  2. 10 bucks says they hire Pederson…he’s the only former HC that has won a Super Bowl. Easy call…

  3. Meh! He’d be better than Meyer, but they all would. I doubt his record in NY will garner much fan support to hire him. Jags gonna be Jags, no matter who they hire because of the owner. At least Kahn did the right thing with Meyer….

  4. I truly feel sorry for whoever takes that job. Any coaching ability will be negated by Baalke’s complete lack of ability to be GM. But then again, anyone dumb enough to take that job deserves what they get.

  5. Jim Harbaugh needs to interview for this job & then insist that he’ll take the job if Khan fires Balke!
