Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke has reportedly "aligned" himself with Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus amid the team's search for a new head coach. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported Saturday that Baalke's reputation within coaching circles is "quite poor," which has complicated the Jags' process and left the GM reaching out to potential candidates to "gauge their interest in him."
There remains a possibility Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett could get second interviews from the Jaguars for their head coaching job. However, there has been no confirmation yet through league sources. Leftwich did not mention the Jaguars' job during his final news conference Thursday with reporters before Sunday's NFC Divisional round playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Caldwell also refuted a report that he declined two other interviews
