The Jacksonville Jaguars are losing a piece of Doug Marrone's coaching staff, as the University of Washington announced it has named Jacksonville offensive assistant John Donovan as its new offensive coordinator. 

Donovan has coached with the Jaguars since 2016, serving as an offensive quality control coach in 2016 before becoming an offensive assistant in 2017. 

In 2017, Donovan helped coach the Jaguars' quarterbacks en route to a 10-6 season and an AFC Championship Game appearance. Donovan was credited by former Jacksonville offensive coordinator Nate Hackett as being an instrumental piece to Jacksonville's red zone plans, a season in which the Jaguars had one of the best red zone offenses in the NFL.
