Jacksonville Jaguars look for help from the East Coast in search of head coach

The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking for a new head coach and they might get a New York state of mind in sunny Florida.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News has just reported that New York Jets Offensive Coordinator Brian Schottenheimer will interview for the head coaching position with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Also known as “Shotty” by players and coaches, he’s been responsible for trying to groom Jets QB Mark Sanchez for the last few years.  Schottenheimer was also responsible for pulling Jets WR Santonio Holmes and benching him late in the game yesterday in the game against the Miami Dolphins.

Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan stated to not have known that Holmes was benched or why he was benched.  Claims are that Holmes gave up and was arguing with teammates in the huddle during the game.  Schottenheimer made the bold decision to pull Holmes during the attempted comeback.

This would be a excellent move in my opinion for Schottenheimer to interview for the job since it seems like the Jets are in an internal struggle right now and he could start fresh with Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert. 

He’s tried with Sanchez who seems to always try to go off script and sulks in an obvious display when a bad play happens.  This is  a habit that Schottenheimer was witnessed trying to break him of repeatedly during the Jets run on HBO’s Hard Knocks series.
