NFL’s Jaguars Lure Away Canes Offensive Coordinator
January 19, 2013 3:47 PM
CORAL GABLES (AP) — Miami says offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch is leaving the Hurricanes for a job with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fisch spent two seasons with the Hurricanes, with the team going 13-11 in that span. He has nine years of previous work as an NFL assistant and the move to Jacksonville reunites him with new Jaguars coach Gus Bradley. Fisch and Bradley worked together with the Seattle Seahawks.
The Hurricanes’ offense took major jumps forward from Fisch’s first year to his second in Coral Gables. Miami gained 63.3 yards per game more on average in 2012 than it did in 2011, and improved its scoring average by nearly a touchdown per game over that span.
