The revival of the Jacksonville Jaguars franchise has begun and who better to bring in the renaissance than the man who put Jacksonville on the map to begin with, Tom Coughlin. There were reports he might be offered the head coaching job, with his age that always seemed a little far-fetched, regardless him joining Jacksonville in an executive role is just as promising. The last time a former legendary Giants head coach became the VP of football operations it was Bill Parcells, and he managed to turn around a 1-15 team to an 11-5 playoff team. I'm guessing Jacksonville is looking for a similar chain of events with Coughlin coming to town. He built this franchise from nothing the first time and was able to bring them to two AFC championship games. Now the Jaguars are at least loaded with young talent, let's not forget the Jaguars were being considered as a possible playoff team before the season started. Unfortunately for them shit hit the fan, but still a lot of young talent on this roster waiting to blossom.
Doug Marrone was brought in as the official head coach after taking over Gus Bradley's duties after he was fired. Marrone has a little head coaching experience in Buffalo where he got them to their first winning season in over 10 years before leaving in a shady manor after ownership changed. Regardless, I think he was the right man for the job in Jacksonville considering his history there and the addition of Tom Coughlin, who I'm sure will bring Marone under his wing, will certainly help ease the transition. I believe the Jaguars might be able to finally gain some stability with this move if Coughlin and Marrone can build a good relationship. If Coughlin begins to micromanage everything, which is going to be tough for him to refrain from doing, then this is going to be a total disaster. If Coughlin just sticks to his job description, the Jaguars might just return to their early 2000's form.
