A recent attempt to get the Jaguars back on the road has failed.

Jacksonville’s attempt to save CEO Trent Baalke was met with skepticism as the team looked for its next head coach, and could cast a shadow over Trevor Lawrence’s chances of coaching him.

Many fans have criticized the franchise for keeping Baalke, and according to CBS Sports, at least the decision in the near future has not been well received by coaching circles either.

Baalke, who has long been seen on the coaching staff as a person involved in the struggle for power, has reportedly stopped some candidates from being interviewed for the position.

The choice to save Trent Baalke was met with skepticism.

“My client had to fire me to be interviewed under this setup,” said CBS Sports ’best coaching agent. “It can’t be. It’s absolutely backwards.”

Sources said some candidates planned to use an interview with the Jaguars to determine how committed the team owner was to keeping Shad Khan Baalke. The report also said NFL executives believe the Jags are looking for a new GM.

“It may have seemed like a good idea for them at the time, but the situation in this league could change,” said one of the GMs. “I’m not saying Trent still can’t find a coach out there, but they don’t like what they hear.”

So far, the Jaguars have interviewed former Eagles boss Doug Pederson and former Lions boss Jim Caldwell. They plan to talk to more NFL assistants this week.

Less than a season after Jacksonville, Urban Meyer was fired as Jags head coach in December after allegations of misconduct surfaced. Meyer was arrested while lying about why he wasn’t returning to Florida with the team – he claimed he was visiting his family but saw him dancing with a woman at the bar – and was accused of kicking the player, among other serious charges.

The Jaguars are ranked 2-14 in the NFL standings. On Sunday, they will spend the season against the Colts.
