Brian Billick not interested in Jaguars job

On Tuesday, the Jaguars went and fired long-time coach Jack Del Rio. Around that time, we put together a list of potential candidates for the job in Jacksonville, with varying degrees of experience and success.

Well, we can already cross one guy off the list, as former Ravens coach Brian Billick, now an analyst with the NFL Network, isn't interested in the gig.

"They’re looking for young and cheap, and I'm neither," Billick said on the NFL Network Tuesday, via NFL.com.

It's a bit insulting, I guess, to assume to that the Jaguars will be "cheap," even if Billicks' correct. (And a bit, um, something to presume that Billick will command "not cheap" money, even if he does have a Super Bowl on his résumé.)

As we noted on the latest podcast, Billick is a sensible candidate for many teams, but he might not work for the Jaguars, who are more likely to go with a coordinator than a big-name head coach.

Shahid Khan is the new owner and presumably will have a hand in hiring the newest coach. (Would you buy a new Honda Civic and let your cousin drive it first? I didn't think so.) So there's a chance he starts slinging around cash.

The more likely scenario, though, is that the Jaguars look towards an up-and-coming coordinator. Given where that job stands in terms of stature and security, it's much more likely that Jacksonville can land someone looking for their first gig than an experienced name.

I hear Joe Paterno needs a job. Just kidding. I think they should try to hire Mike Sherman away from Texas A&M, he is a talent wasted in the NCAA.

Marty Schottenheimer would be a great fit for this team.  He is a proven winner.

How about Mike Leach ?  He already lives in Florida, and would install an actual offense for the Jaguars.

He isn't the GM. Ozzie Newsome married him to Kyle Boller. As far as being surrounded by talent, he took Jamal Lewis for 2000 years in a season as a brusing back. Thats not easy to do, without a passing game.

Billick has been humbled in recent years.
He is one of the best commentators on TV now and is not bias (Hear that Bill Cowher?)

I think he'll wait till the offseason to jump on a better coaching opportunity.

"We can however confirm that the new coach will not be from India."

Thank God for that. There's enough corruption in the NFL as it is. LMAO

Superstar,
I bet you watch and know a lot about football. I am not sure why your so angry. You would have been lucky to have Brian Billick for a number of reasons. He broke the single season scoring record as offensive coordiantor with the Vikings. In 9 years as head coach in Baltimore he won two division titles, in argueably the toughest division in football, including a superbowl. He coached what some would call the greatest defense in NFL history that smae year. He put together one of the best coach staff since Bill Wash. He hired Jack Del Rio (Jag), Mike Singletary (S.F), Mike Smith (Atlanta), Rex Ryan (Jets), Marvin Lewis (Cin), Mike Nolan (S.F). Thats a lot of head coaches coming out of his system. On top of that he isn't old. He is 57! Thats about average. You can keep your up and coming head coach who is hungry becuase that can be hit and miss miss. Like

Jim Mora Jr
Butch Davis
Marty Mornhinwig
Romeo Crennel
Gregg Williams
Jim Zorn
Dave Campo
Wade Phillips
Bobby Petrino
Rod Marinell
Lane Kiffin
Josh McDaniels
Cam Camron

Super Bowl winning coach, or someone who has never been a head coach? Who do you think would have a better chance of success?

Jags not interested in blowhard Billick

There, I fixed it for you.  Who does Billick think he is kidding anyway.  He is the Trent Dilfer of coaches.  They both won a SB on the coattails of a great defense.  He was a great offensive mind when he had all world talent around him.  I could have a great offensive mind if you put great talent around me too.  Plus, how can a guy that no owner in the league would even consider hiring act like he is going to cost too much.  A dollar would be too much for this clown.
