Byron Leftwich appears to be headed back to Jacksonville.  The Buccaneers offensive coordinator is expected to be hired as the Jaguars new head coach.

Leftwich was the Jaguars first round draft pick back in 2003, 7th pick overall.  He was in Jacksonville for the first four season of his career.

From Big Cat Country:

The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to hire Byron Leftwich as the franchise’s seventh full-time head coach, and ninth head coach overall, as first reported by @E_Dilla and confirmed by Demetrius Harvey.

Leftwich’s most recent role was on Bruce Arians’ staff as offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2019 through the 2021-2022 season. With Leftwich calling the plays, the Bucs won Super Bowl LV, handily defeating the Kansas City Chiefs by a final score of 31-9

This season, the Buccaneers were eliminated from the playoffs on Jan. 23 in the Divisional Round, losing to the Los Angeles Rams by a final score of 30-27, which allowed Leftwich to take a second interview with the Jaguars on Jan. 25.

This would be a great way for Jaguars fans to rinse the bad taste left by Urban Meyer out of their mouths.  Leftwich coached his balls off the last few seasons in Tampa Bay, he'll bring a great offense with him and he's a Jaguar.
