Besides Meyer, the Jaguars have interviewed Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, former Tampa Bay Buccanneers/Atlanta Falcons interim coach Raheem Morris and Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith, who was interviewed on Sunday night following their 20-13 loss to the Ravens.

The Jets announced Wednesday that Saleh had his second interview with the franchise, and he reportedly will meet with the Eagles, who fired head coach Doug Pederson Monday.

Terry Fontenot, the New Orleans Saints vice president/assistant general manager of pro personnel, is the fifth minority candidate the Jaguars have interviewed for the vacant general manager job. Fontenot joins minority candidate ESPN analyst Louis Riddick, former New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese and former Texans general manager Rick Smith and former Cleveland Browns general manager Sam Farmer who have been interviewed.


Jaguars interim general manager Trent Baalke is also a candidate for the job.

He was promoted from director of player personnel to interim general manager on Nov. 29 after Khan fired general manager Dave Caldwell.

A veteran of more than 20 years in the NFL, Baalke spent 12 seasons with the 49ers (2005-16), including six as the general manager, from 2011-16.
