McCardell interviews with Mularkey to be Jags receivers coach

Keenan McCardell would like to return to the city where he enjoyed his greatest NFL success -- this time as the Jacksonville Jaguars receivers coach.

McCardell, the franchise's second all-time leading receiver, interviewed for the assistant position with new Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey on Monday.

"It went pretty good," McCardell said, according to the Florida Times-Union. "We're still talking. You just never know, Jacksonville would be a great place. … At the end of the day I have to teach guys how to be successful just as I was successful."

The 42-year-old McCardell spent last season as the Redskins' receivers coach, but he learned last week that the team would not be asking him back. Washington's passing offense ranked 14th in the NFL.

Jacksonville struggled in the passing game last season, ranking last in the league in total passing yards with 2,179. The Jaguars' leading receiver was tight end Marcedes Lewis with 460 yards.
