McCardell interviews to be Jaguars receivers coach

A familiar face interviewed to be the receivers coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Keenan McCardell, one of the best receivers in franchise history, told the Florida Times-Union that his interview with new Coach Mike Mularkey went well.

“It went good,” McCardell said by phone. “It went pretty good, I must say. We’re still talking. You just never know, Jacksonville would be a great place. … At the end of the day I have to teach guys how to be successful just as I was successful.”

McCardell, 42, coached receivers for the Washington Redskins in 2011, but with his contract expiring, it will not be renewed.

For the Jaguars' list of unheralded and somewhat unproductive receivers, maybe McCardell can show them a bit of what made him successful when he was in tandem with Jimmy Smith during the glory days of the franchise in the late 1990s.
