Another college coach has been plucked by the NFL. This time, it’s Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Saturday morning that Fisch will become the OC for the Jacksonville Jaguars. A spokesperson confirmed the news to the Miami Herald and South Florida Sun-Sentinel confirmed Schefter’s report as well.
Fisch has prior experience in the NFL. He came to Miami in 2011 after a brief stint with the Seattle Seahawks. He’s also coached with the Denver Broncos, Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans.
The Miami Hurricanes averaged 31.4 points per game in 2012, but were streaky on offense. Still quarterback Stephen Morris threw for over 3,000 yards and freshman running back Duke Johnson rushed for nearly 1,000 and was one of the most explosive players in the country.
Fisch will become the second departure from Al Golden‘s staff. Wide receivers coach George McDonald joined Brett Bielema‘s staff at Arkansas, but left to become the OC at Syracuse about a month later.
