The Jacksonville Jaguars will interview former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson on Thursday, NFL Network reported Wednesday.

Pederson, who guided the Eagles to the Super Bowl LII championship, will be the first candidate interviewed for the vacancy since Urban Meyer was fired on Dec. 16.

Pederson, 53, reached the playoffs three times in five seasons with the Eagles and posted a 42-37-1 overall record before being fired on Jan. 11, 2021.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles are among other reported candidates for the job, as are Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

Jaguars interim coach Darrell Bevell is reportedly also under consideration.

Jacksonville (2-13) brings a seven-game losing streak into Sunday’s game at the New England Patriots (9-6).
