Jay Gruden Reportedly Told The Jaguars He Was Interested In Head Coaching Position

Earlier this week NFL Network Insider Albert Breer wrote that the Jacksonville Jaguars have Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden listed as one of the top candidates for the team's head coaching vacancy. According to Breer, Gruden told the Jaguars that was indeed interested in the position but wants to "focus on Saturday's AFC Wild Card Game against the Houston Texans."

Breer writes:

The Jaguars are still expected to bring Gruden in for an interview, but the coach is aware of the risk he is taking in waiting. Gruden was told he's a strong candidate for the opening, according to sources.

If Gruden takes the job, he'll be the third coach to become a head coach that formerly served under Marvin Lewis, joining Minnesota's Leslie Frazier and Oakland's Hue Jackson.

Along with the obviousness of being a head coach, Gruden's heavy Florida connections along with a desperate need to develop quarterback Blaine Gabbert are huge reasons for the possible move to Jacksonville.
