There Are Conflicting Reports About The Jaguars' Head Coaching Search

As of yesterday, the Jacksonville Jaguars seemingly found their next head coach in Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich. But there seems to be a snag.

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, there are "still some items left to clear up" between the Jaguars and Leftwich.

He made it clear that the two sides are working to make him their head coach.

But ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter appears to be hearing something else. Taking to Twitter this morning, Schefter said that the Jaguars are talking with Leftwich and others, including Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus. Schefter said that the Jaguars are NOT close to a deal with anyone, let alone Leftwich, and still haven't decided which way they will go. The Jaguars are still reportedly "going through the process and figuring out."

The Jacksonville Jaguars are seeking their second head coach in two years after firing first-year Urban Meyer after just 13 games this past year. To the anger of many Jaguars fans, the team kept on general manager Trent Baalke as well.

Baalke is the man in charge of the Jaguars' head coaching search, and Byron Leftwich has seemed like the obvious choice since day one. Leftwich is a former Jaguars quarterback who has turned the Bucs into a dominant offense over the past three years.

Will the Jaguars reach a deal with Byron Leftwich?

If not, who will be the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars?
