The Jaguars have reportedly requested permission to interview Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer for their head-coaching vacancy.
Schottenheimer interviewed with former Jags GM Gene Smith last January before Mike Mularkey was chosen. He has a connection to new GM David Caldwell through Rams GM Les Snead, as the two execs worked together in the Falcons front office for years. Schottenheimer would seem to be an uninspired choice. His offenses in New York and St. Louis have been unimaginative. One person who worked with Schottenheimer did tell NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that he would be a better head coach than coordinator.
