Jaguars Make Coaching Move

After struggling to find some consistency from their secondary play during the 2008 season, the Jacksonville Jaguars made a coaching change on the defensive side of the ball.

Mobile, Ala.--

Veteran NFL assistant coach Donnie Henderson is out as the Jacksonville Jaguars secondary coach after just one season. Henderson confirmed the news in person to Scout.com Tuesday afternoon.

The fiery defensive coach has worked in the NFL for nine seasons and has been a defensive coordinator twice in his career (with the New York Jets-2004-2005 and with the Detroit Lions in 2006).

In other team news, a league source said Jacksonville has around $11 million in projected salary cap space available to spend in free agency.

However, they have decisions coming up on roster bonuses for CB Drayton Florence and WR Jerry Porter which could clear up additional cap space should the team decline to pick up the bonuses.
