Jaguars have interest in bringing back Tom Coughlin

- The Jacksonville Jaguars have interest in former New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin.

General manager Dave Caldwell said Monday that the 70-year-old Coughlin "would be somebody we'd be interested in talking to" about the team's coaching vacancy.

The Jaguars (2-12) fired Gus Bradley after the team's ninth consecutive loss Sunday. Bradley went 14-48 in four seasons in Jacksonville.

Coughlin was Jacksonville's first head coach, leading the Jaguars between 1995 and 2002. He went 68-60 in eight seasons. Coughlin resigned last January after 12 seasons with the Giants, but has made it clear he wants to return to the NFL.

Caldwell could give him a shot.

Caldwell picked offensive line coach Doug Marrone as the team's interim coach for the final two games. Marrone went 15-17 in two seasons (2013-14) as Buffalo's head coach. Marrone made it clear Monday that he's sticking with quarterback Blake Bortles for the final two games.
