Jaguars coaches given permission to talk to other teams

Published On: Jan 04 2013 03:54:27 PM EST

A person familiar with the situation says Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan is allowing assistant coaches to look for other jobs while he continues interviewing candidates to be the team's general manager.
The person spoke to The Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because the team has not publically discussed details of the process..
Khan fired GM Gene Smith Monday and has since been crisscrossing the country interviewing potential replacements. He has spoken with Atlanta's David Caldwell, San Francisco's Tom Gamble and Marc Ross of the New York Giants.
The new GM is expected to decide the fate of coach Mike Mularkey, who went 2-14 in his first season in Jacksonville.
Since Mularkey's assistants are under contract for 2013, Khan could have prevented them from talking to other clubs.
