The Jacksonville Jaguars fired coach Urban Meyer earlier this month, which put them in position to take advantage of the league’s new rule to interview coaching candidates two weeks before their regular season ends. On Tuesday, they did just that by casting a wide net and putting in requests to interview a variety of names, all of whom have NFL experience.

So far, the list of candidates has eight names on it. All but two of those names are currently in the NFL, but the two that aren’t are former head coaches and are the only two who have accepted the option to interview at the moment.

As for the other eight candidates, they are on teams that have secured playoff spots (or are on the verge of doing so), so it’s unknown if they will be interviewing for now. That said, we’ve created a coaching tracker to keep our readers up to date on the search and we’ll be filling out the chart below when more becomes available.
