It appears that the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 2021 coaching staff will mostly consist of new faces as Urban Meyer was given their head coaching job last month. Of the 2020 staff, defensive coordinator Todd Wash was atop the list of coaches who weren’t expected to return as the Jags’ defense was one of the worst (No. 31) in the league last season.
However, despite the Jags’ struggles, Wash has found a new opportunity and he’ll now be joining Dan Campbell’s staff as a defensive line coach with the Detroit Lions. As a result, he’ll serve under former Jags defensive back Aaron Glenn, who was named the Lions’ defensive coordinator last month.
Wash was the Jags’ defensive coordinator from 2016-20. Prior, he was their defensive line coach from 2013-15. Wash was brought into the Jags’ organization by former head coach Gus Bradley, who had worked with Wash during his time with North Dakota State, the Tampa Bay Bucs, and Seattle Seahawks.
Under his new role, Wash will be working with notables like Danny Shelton and Trey Flowers in Detroit. He’ll also be tasked with helping Glenn improve the Lions defense which finished dead last in the NFL in terms of overall defense allowing a 419.8 yard per game average.
