Koetter has served as Jaguar's offensive coordinator since 2007 and was mentioned for a number of job openings the season. Jacksonville had one of the worst offenses in the NFL this season but didn't have a lot of weapons other than running back Maurice Jones-Drew.

Koetter had also been rumored to have received interest from Kansas in their head coaching search and from Alabama for its offensive coordinator position.
