Jaguars coaches under Mike Mularkey have been told they’re free to seek work elsewhere while they wait to see what the plans are after a new GM is hired in Jacksonville. Tucker has served as an NFL defensive coordinator (Cleveland – 2008; Jackson 2009-present) and had the additional title of Assistant head coach added to his title by Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey when he retained him for his own staff.
He is a Cleveland, Ohio native.
