2. Nick Holz and his influence on the Jaguars offense for the 2023 season

Something that hasn't been brought nearly enough is that most of the Jaguars' offensive staff from last year is back for the 2023 season. Wide receivers coach Chris Jackson took the same position at Texas, so the Jaguars brought in Chad Hall to take his place. Hall is highly regarded around the league and well-liked by all his players, so receiver corps shouldn't miss a beat.

Also, passing game coordinator Jim Bob Cooter left to become Shane Steichen's offensive coordinator with the Indianapolis Colts. To replace Bob Cooter, Jacksonville hired Nick Holz, who the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at UNLV last year.

Before that, Holz was an assistant for the Las Vegas Raiders from 2012-2021. Having learned from Todd Downing, Bill Musgrave, Greg Olson and Jon Gruden, Holz has a wide array of influences and Press Taylor talked about what he brings to the table.

"I think the biggest thing with Nick is taken us now in Year 1 to Year 2 and Nick's experience with different systems during his time with the Raiders. He's been with a lot of those different guys. Whether it be coach Gruden, coach Olson, a bunch of different people that we think bring different ideas and experience to us".

"Whether it be spread systems, West Coast systems, no huddle stuff, his experience. The way he meshes with our coaching staff, having known a couple of guys through. I think it will continue to elevate us from Year 1 to Year 2 like we've been talking about," Taylor said.

Coaches need to consistently reinvent thelseves if they don't want to become obsolete. Bringing in other voices from other coaching backgrounds shows Doug Pederson's willingness to adapt and adjust.
