Jags and Vikes interested in Tucker #insideslant2 hours ago Favorite Retweet ReplyTucker, a 40-year old who got his start in the college ranks, has been the Jaguars defensive coordinator for the last three seasons.In 2011, Jacksonville ranked 8th in passing yardage allowed and 9th in rushing yardage allowed under Tucker.He took over as the interim head coach when the Jaguars fired Jack Del Rio towards the end of last season and interviewed for the full-time job before Jacksonville hired former Atlanta Falcons OC Mike Mularkey instead.Mularkey is reportedly interested in keeping the in-demand Tucker, who also interviewed for the Minnesota Vikings DC position last week.
