JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jaguars have filled one coaching vacancy on their staff, adding Buffalo’s Chad Hall to coach the wide receivers, according to a report from the NFL Network.

Hall spent six seasons with the Bills and was promoted from offensive assistant to receivers coach prior to the 2019 season.

Hall actually spent a training camp with the Jaguars in 2014. He played five years in the NFL, spending time with the Eagles, 49ers and Chiefs.

Hall’s time with the Eagles (2010-12) coincided with Doug Pederson’s time there. He would later join Pederson and Andy Reid in Kansas City for a season. He was a journeyman as a player, finishing with 16 catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns.

Hall was highly regarded by players in Buffalo and interviewed with the Ravens earlier this month for their offensive coordinator position. In 2020, Buffalo receiver Stefon Diggs was a first-team All-Pro selection and teammate Cole Beasley was a second-team selection.

In Jacksonville, Hall will have a core that includes Christian Kirk, Zay Jones and Jamal Agnew. Calvin Ridley, whom the team traded for last season, is eligible to apply for reinstatement next week.

Hall replaces Chris Jackson, who left for a position at the University of Texas.
