Urban Meyer was officially hired as the new head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, and he is already getting to work on building a staff.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Meyer already has a top offensive coordinator candidate picked out: Scott Linehan.

Linehan, 57, is a longtime offensive coach in both college and the NFL. He was a head coach of the Rams from 2006-2008 but only went 11-25 before returning to offensive coordinator work. He had stints with the Detroit Lions (2009-2013) and Dallas Cowboys (2015-2018). He was LSU’s passing game coordinator this season but was let go after a staff purge.

Meyer has long cited Linehan as an influence for him.
