Doug Marrone is the new Jacksonville Jaguar head coach. He was the head coach in Buffalo for two seasons. He walked away due to a change-in-ownership clause in his contract. His offensive mindset is what the Jaguars need as the leader.
Tom Coughlin built the new Jaguar franchise into a playoff team. He moved on to New York and won two Super Bowls. Twice, he has built playoff teams. By hiring Coughlin, Khan’s confidence, in him, speaks volumes to the direction Jacksonville will go.
Dave Caldwell receives a two year extension as general manager. Caldwell has built a roster will plenty of talent. His ability to draft talent speaks well after selecting Dante Fowler and Jalen Ramsey. Hopefully, he will not let Blake Bortles cloud his judgement.
Two Areas That Speaks To A New Direction for Jacksonville Jaguar Football
First, the evaluation of talent will be a three headed process. Marrone’s scheme will dictate a new direction of player talent. Caldwell will fill the roster due to Marrone’s wishes. Coughlin will determine if scheme and personnel match the new Jaguar direction. Hopefully the three headed monster does not regress into the Three Stooges.
Second, Shad Khan speaks of process based approach in building his business and football team. Khan’s idea of build the Jaguars is a process, not a build/blow-up method. From the first day that he purchased the Jaguars, he had an idea of the process to re-build the team. Khan understood that the talent was accumulating on the roster. A change needed to be made to reach the next level.
You can expect more changes will happen to continue the process based approach. As a result, to win the Super Bowl, there will be more changes to further the process. How many process levels will it take the Jaguars? Hopefully they are close.
