    Jaguars Fire Del Rio

    The Jacksonville Jaguars fired coach Jack Del Rio on Tuesday after a 3-8 start, parting ways with the franchise's second coach during his ninth season.
    Del Rio's job security had been tenuous since owner Wayne Weaver said the coach needed to make the playoffs to secure a 10th season in Jacksonville. The Jaguars were essentially eliminated with Sunday's 20-13 loss to AFC South-leading Houston.
    The timing of the move made sense since the Jaguars are struggling to sell tickets and host a Monday night game against San Diego. Defensive coordinator Mel Tucker was named the interim coach. The team scheduled a noon news conference to discuss the move.
    Del Rio leaves with a 69-73 record, including 1-2 in two playoffs appearances. The Jaguars didn't win the AFC South in any of his nine seasons.
    Weaver considered firing Del Rio after last season, but kept him partly because of the uncertainty surrounding the NFL lockout. Weaver refused to give contract extensions to any of Del Rio's assistants, putting everyone on alert that this was a win-or-else season.

    Re: Jaguars Fire Del Rio

    not surprising. He's been walking a tight rope for a few season, now. I think he could be a good coach, in the right scenario. So much about Jacksonville's situation is wrong.

    Paul Rhoads to Jacksonville?

    someone had to do it.

    But no, that really doesn't surprise me in the least bit, it sucks too, because there is absolutely no fan support.

    Re: Jaguars Fire Del Rio

    I know he is a USC guy...but might UCLA look at him as a replacement for Rick N?

    Three years too late. I'll enjoy seeing him and the Jags in LA in a few years after the franchise relocates and he becomes head coach at USC after Kiffin bolts.

    doesn't sound like the reported new owner is planning on moving them.

    Jaguars sold to Shahid Khan, staying in Jax - CBSSports.com

    obviously words are only words, but...

    Too bad that Shere Khan didn't buy the Jaguars instead, but that probably would have violated the NFL's intra-genus trafficking rule.
