Report: Jaguars hiring Greg Olson as offensive coordinator

Tuesday January 20th, 2015

The Jacksonville Jaguars are hiring Greg Olson as their new offensive coordinator, reports CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. 

Olson comes to Jacksonville after holding the same position with the Oakland Raiders for the last two seasons. He has previously also served as the offensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions, St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 2012, he was Jacksonville's quarterbacks coach.

In 2014, the Raiders finished last in the NFL in both net total yards and yards per game, with the Jaguars finishing one place above them in each. Oakland averaged 15.8 points per game, which was No. 31 in the league, above only Jacksonville.
