Following the failure of the Urban Meyer experience for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the NFL team is in need of a new head coach. Friday morning, Ian Rapaport reported that the team is bringing in two separate candidates to interview for the head coaching position, Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore.

Leftwich is particularly interesting due to his connection to the Jaguars. Many fans of the team can remember his time as their quarterback from 2003-2006.

It was also announced yesterday that the Jaguars will be interviewing former Houston Texans head coach and current Alabama offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien.

Here are some reactions around social media to the candidates that the Jaguars have announced.

O’Brien does bring some good qualities. His time in Houston wasn’t a complete disaster, going to the playoffs four times in his six seasons there. However he had control over the personnel decision in Houston, and on that end, O’Brien was a train wreck.

With the lack of stability that Meyer brought to the Jaguars this season, whoever the Jaguars bring in to become the next head coach needs to be reliable and able to manage the locker room.

Jaguars fans have clearly had enough of the dysfunction that has been going on this season, as they plan to protest their Week 18 game against the Indianapolis Colts by wearing clown costumes. While it doesn’t appear that the Jaguars are parting ways with their questionable GM Trent Baalke, they can at least bring in a coach that can help change the culture of the team around.
