NFC South coordinators seem to be the hot candidates for the coaching job in Jacksonville.
As previously reported, the Jaguars have asked for permission to speak to Atlanta coordinator Mike Mularkey. The update on that is that the Falcons have granted permission.
Now, The Charlotte Observer is reporting that the Jaguars also have asked permission to speak to coordinator Rob Chudzinski.
Mularkey and Chudzinski also could be candidates for the vacancy in Tampa Bay. Mularkey has drawn strong reviews for his work with Matt Ryan and Chudzinski largely was responsible for Cam Newton’s instant success as a rookie. The Buccaneers could be looking for an offensive-minded coach to help get quarterback Josh Freeman back on track.
