Report: OC Jedd Fisch Leaves Miami For Jacksonville Jaguars


It has been confirmed that offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch has left the University of Miami to accept the same position with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fisch, who was entering his third year at Miami, now becomes the second coach to abruptly leave within a matter of weeks (George McDonald to Arkansas).

With the recent hiring of Mario Cristobal, it will be interesting to see if head coach Al Golden shifts Cristobal to offensive coordinator and seeks a new quarterbacks coach, or does he plan to hire a new offensive coordinator altogether?

Fisch, a University of Florida graduate, arrived in Miami having served as the quarterbacks coach under Pete Carroll with the Seattle Seahawks.  Most of his time has been spent in the NFL having served under an array of esteemed coaches like Mike Shanahan (Washington Redskins), Brian Billick (Baltimore Ravens), Dom Capers (Houston Texans) and Steve Spurrier (University of Florida).

During the 2012 season under Fisch, the Miami Hurricanes ranked No. 25 in passing yards, No. 83 in rushing yards and averaged 31.4 points per game, per ESPN.
