Jedd Fisch to the Jacksonville Jaguars
Jedd Fisch is moving on from the University of Miami to the NFL. The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired him as their new offensive coordinator.
Jedd Fisch will be joining Gus Bradley on the Jaguars. The two worked together in 2010 for the Seattle Seahawks, Jacksonville.com reports.
Fisch spent two years with the Hurricanes and in those two years his offense averaged 26.5 and 31.4 points per game, respectively. Under coach Al Golden, they had a 13-11 record. In 2012, Miami was 34th in the nation and 27th in the NCAA with 295.4 passing yards per game and allowed 1.5 sacks per game.
NFL.com reports that Fisch has experience with these NFL teams: Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos, Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks.
There seems to have been a lot of hires into the NFL from college teams. The Philadelphia Eagles hired Chip Kelly, the Indianapolis Colts hired their new offensive coordinator, Pep Hamilton, from Stanford. The Chicago Bears hired outside of the NFL and from the Canadian Football League with Marc Trestman.
These new nontraditional hires should prove to make an interesting NFL season.
