Jaguars QB Blake Bortles didn’t develop into the kind of QB a No. 3 overall pick should have as a rookie under OC Jedd Fisch.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly fired OC Jedd Fisch after two years on the job.
The move came after Fisch did very little to successfully build the offense in the two years since he was hired. Fisch had a fairly thin resume when he was hired, and it seems likely that Jaguars coach Gus Bradley will look for someone more experienced to replace him. The name of recently fired Bears coach Marc Trestman has already surfaced as a potential candidate to become the next offensive coordinator in Jacksonville.
The Jaguars have finished ranked 32nd in the NFL in points scored in each of the last two seasons, and have been in the bottom five in both points and yards in each of the last four. The team has not had a 1,000 yard rusher since Maurice Jones-Drew in 2011, and have not had a 1,000 yard receiver since Jimmy Smith in 2005. QB Blake Bortles 2.3 TD% rating in 2014 was the lowest in team history for any QB that had started more than three games in a season.
The Jaguars will pick No. 3 in the 2015 NFL draft for the second straight year. It will be the fourth straight time they have drafted in the top five and the eight straight time they have drafted in the top 10.
