Jacksonville Jaguars Coaching Search: Jay Gruden Not Ready For NFL Coaching Job?

Though Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator had appeared to be the frontrunner to earn the Jacksonville Jaguars' open head-coaching job, Gruden may have some reservations about taking it, according to a report, because he feels he may not be ready.

This year is Gruden's first at the NFL level, having spent most of his professional career playing and coaching in minor leagues such as the Arena Football League and United Football League. A former quarterback, Gruden is credited with helping develop second-round draft choice Andy Dalton into a solid NFL prospect. Dalton threw for 3398 yards and 20 touchdowns, with just 13 interceptions, during the 2011 season, completing 58.1 percent of his passes. If he were able to translate his success with Dalton to Jags quarterback Blaine Gabbert, then the organization would no doubt be thrilled.
