According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Jacksonville Jaguars will interview Buffalo Bills interim head coach Anthony Lynn. He’s the last name to be added to the mix of interviews for the team.

Lynn reportedly joins Mike Smith, Josh McDaniels, Doug Marrone, Kyle Shanahan, Harold Goodwin and Tom Coughlin, who are connected to the job. Coughlin has already interviewed for the job and the 71-year-old, who works for the National Football League now, is a former Jaguars and New York Giants head coach.

Lynn is linked to five of the six jobs except for the San Diego Chargers.

The Chargers are reportedly looking for non-offensive minded coaches. Their former head coach Mike McCoy was a defensive coordinator before getting the job.

McCoy went 28-38 in four years with the Chargers. He went 1-1 in the playoffs before his exit this week.

Shanahan – the Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator — is the hottest name on the market. Marrone is the Jaguars offensive line coach turned interim head coach when the team fired Gus Bradley.

Smith – the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive coordinator – is also a former Jaguars defensive coordinator. McDaniels is the New England Patriots offensive coordinator – and the former Denver Broncos head coach. Goodwin is the offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals.

Lynn lost as the Bills interim head coach to end the regular season. They lost 30-10 to the New York Jets.

He replaced Rex Ryan, who was fired after asking about his future. He was 15-16 with the team in two seasons.
