Jaguars Hire Greg Olson as Offensive Coordinator
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Greg Olson as offensive coordinator.
Olson spent the past two seasons as Oakland's offensive coordinator. That followed a one-year stint as Jacksonville's assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach.
Coach Mike Mularkey, Olson and several other assistant were fired after a 2-14 season.
Olson replaces Jedd Fisch, who was fired after two lackluster seasons in which the Jaguars were ranked at or near the bottom of the NFL in nearly every offensive category.
The Raiders weren't much better under Olson's direction. Oakland ranked last in total offense this past season, finishing 32nd in rushing and 26th in passing. But rookie quarterback Derek Carr threw for 3,270 yards, with 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. The Raiders ranked 23rd in total offense in 2013.
