Jacksonville Jaguars: 4 possible replacements for OC Jay Gruden in 2021
The Jacksonville Jaguars may bring in a new offensive coordinator soon.
It feels like it’s just a matter of time before the Jacksonville Jaguars part ways with head coach Doug Marrone and his staff. Even though he’s been told he’s safe for the remainder of the season, the organization hasn’t said anything about his job security beyond 2020, so they could relieve him of his duties as soon as the season is over.
The Jaguars will likely use the second overall pick in 2021’s draft to select a young quarterback prospect, so their next head coach will be tasked with bringing in an offensive coordinator that will help him develop the franchise’s quarterback of the future.
Also, Jacksonville’s next offensive coordinator will be entrusted to increase the team’s offensive efficiency. They are currently 22nd in total yards and 28th in scoring points. Besides developing the team’s next quarterback, he will need to get the most out of a talented wide receiver group that has underperformed in 2020.
On the bright side, the next offensive coordinator will have some alluring building blocks to work with, such as running back James Robinson, and wide receivers Laviska Shenault Jr. and D.J. Chark Jr. One of these offensive coordinator prospects could put the Jaguars young playmakers in a position to succeed.
