FOXBORO (CBS) – Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien will interview for the head coaching vacancy with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Jaguars fired longtime head coach Jack Del Rio at the end of November after a 3-8 start. The team, which was also sold to a new owner during the season, finished 5-11 overall.

O’Brien had also been mentioned as a candidate for the Penn State opening, but sources told CBS Sports that he will not coach the Nittany Lions.
