Listen: Ian Rapoport discusses likelihood of Josh McDaniels wanting Jaguars head-coaching job


As expected, the Jaguars head-coaching job is available following Urban Meyer being fired this week.

Josh McDaniels' name always seems to come up of late, but according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport on Gresh & Keefe, it may not be a job that appeals to him.

“I think a better question is, is this a job Josh McDaniels would want? As he goes into this process now, that should be the question every time," Rapoport said. "It’s a weird year for head-coach candidates. I wouldn’t say there’s a lot of great candidates. This will probably be more of a year for the retreads, former head coaches than anything else — Dan Quinn, Doug Peterson and Vance Joseph. I think those guys will be kind of hotter than some of the younger guys, but obviously Josh is in that category.

“It’s just you do have Trevor Lawrence, who I think is going to be good, but honestly, watching him this year you really don’t know. Then you have an owner who has not covered himself in glory over his 10 years, or whatever it is in the NFL. [McDaniels] needs to make sure to look for a good, stable properly operating franchise, and I don’t know if this is one that he would want.”

Listen to the full answer, which begins around 4:00.
