Report: Jaguars to fire GM Smith

The SportsXchange

The Jacksonville Jaguars will fire general manager Gene Smith, ESPN.com reported Sunday.

Sources told ESPN that Arizona Cardinals director of player personnel Jason Licht and San Francisco 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble are the top candidates for the job.

The Jaguars reportedly want to keep coach Mike Mularkey, but the new general manager will be left to make that decision. Mularkey, 51, is in his first season as the Jaguars coach.

Jacksonville is a franchise-worst 2-13 heading into Sunday's season finale at the Tennessee Titans.

Licht, who was a finalist for the Chicago Bears general manager job, has also worked for the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.

Gamble works with 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who is considered a top head coaching candidate. Gamble is considered a serious candidate for a GM job.
