Interim head coach Darrell Bevell has an interview with owner Shad Khan to remain the leader of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Bevell said Monday, one day after the Jaguars ended the season with an upset of the Indianapolis Colts, that Khan let him know he would be one of the coaching candidates interviewed to replace Urban Meyer.

Meyer was fired Dec. 16 and Bevell was named interim head coach after a late-night call from Trent Baalke, the team’s general manager who was retained for next season.

It’s the second straight year Bevell was tasked with seeing out the end of a season as an interim coach. Last season, he replaced Matt Patricia for the final five games of the Detroit Lions’ season.

The Jaguars also secured the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Jacksonville selected quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the top pick in the 2021 draft.
