Jaguars coach Mularkey adds three assistants to defensive staff

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- New Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey has added three more assistants to his staff.

Mularkey retained Paul Spicer and Brandon Blaney, and hired former Jaguars defensive back Marlon McCree. Spicer is the assistant defensive line coach, Blaney is a defensive assistant, and McCree is the assistant secondary coach.

Also Wednesday, the Jaguars interviewed former Florida and Illinois coach Ron Zook for the special teams coordinator position. New owner Shahid Khan is a big Illini booster and supported Zook during his tenure with the school.

Spicer spent last season as a defensive assistant in Jacksonville, and Blaney was a defensive quality control coach. McCree served two coaching internships in training camp with the New York Giants and the Denver Broncos. McCree played eight seasons in the league, including his first three with the Jaguars.
