Jaguars promote Monken to QBs coach

The Jacksonville Jaguars have promoted Todd Monken from

receivers coach to quarterbacks coach.

Monken replaces Mike Shula, whose contract ended after last

season. Shula could have remained in Jacksonville, but chose to

become quarterbacks coach for the Carolina Panthers on Friday.

Monken has coached Jacksonville’s receivers the past four

seasons, helping develop starters Mike Sims-Walker and Mike Thomas.

Monken previously worked on the college level at LSU, Oklahoma

State and Eastern Michigan.

Johnny Cox, the team’s quality control coach, will replace

Monken as receivers coach. Offensive staff assistant Matt Griffin

will fill Cox’s job.
