The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking to go back to the well. Linked to former Jaguars head coach Tom Coughlin since the team fired Gus Bradley earlier this month, it now appears the two sides are meeting.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Coughlin is interviewing for the team’s head coaching vacancy on Wednesday.

It is surprising that the Jaguars would focus on a 70-year-old head coach that’s seen as somewhat of a retread around league circles.

Though, it could very well be an effort to repeat the success Jacksonville saw under Coughlin early in its existence. Coughlin led the team to four playoff appearances in eight seasons, finishing with double-digit wins three times. It remains the most successful stretch in the 20-plus year history of the Jaguars’ franchise.

A two-time Super Bowl winner with the New York Giants, Coughlin would also give the Jaguars some relevance as it comes to the sidelines. That’s something we most definitely didn’t see during Bradley’s historically bad stint as the team’s head coach.
