Mel Tucker will be Jaguars interim head coach
The Jaguars will continue with a defensive-minded head coach for the final five weeks of the season.
The two most likely options were Tucker and offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. Koetter has been in the news of late because Del Rio said the offensive playcalling at the end of the Browns loss and the decision not to call a timeout against Houston both were Koetter’s decisions.
Perhaps Tucker will get more involved with the offense than Del Rio ever did. Tucker has been with the Jaguars since 2009 as defensive coordinator.
