    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Jaguars' busy week of interviews for the head coaching job will continue on Thursday with Doug Marrone.

    Marrone was named the interim head coach after the Jaguars fired Gus Bradley following a loss to the Houston Texans in week 15. As the interim coach, Marrone led the Jaguars to victory over the Tennessee Titans, and the Jaguars suffered a last-second loss in the season finale to the Indianapolis Colts.

    General Manager Dave Caldwell said Marrone would be considered for the position, and on Thursday, Marrone will get that opportunity.

    Marrone spent the last two seasons with the Jaguars as the assistant head coach and offensive line coach. Prior to coming to Jacksonville, Marrone was the head coach in Buffalo for two seasons. He compiled a record of 15-17 before leaving over uncertainty with the Buffalo situation.

    Marrone also spent four seasons as the head coach at Syracuse University.

    The Jaguars are reportedly interested in as many as seven candidates for their head coaching vacancy.
