According to the Florida Times-Union, Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio will be staying put in Jacksonville, despite reported overtures from his alma mater USC. If the report is accurate it means the Bills will remain the only open head coaching job in the league.

Del Rio told the paper that he met with owner Wayne Weaver and later GM Gene Smith and members of the coaching and personnel staff to discuss their offseason plans moving forward. It was originally thought that his meeting with Weaver was going to determine his fate as head coach.

“Just thought some truth would be good mixed with all the speculation,” Del Rio told the Times-Union. “I’ve been in meetings all day with staff members and [general manager] Gene Smith preparing our offseason plan going forward, and nothing other than that. I’m always honest with you and that is exactly what occurred.”

UPDATE: Peter King has just confirmed it via his twitter account.
