The Jacksonville Jaguars must have circled Tuesday as the red-letter date to make wholesale changes at the top. Jack Del Rio will no longer be the head coach, replaced in the interim by defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. Soon after that move, reports say Wayne Weaver, long speculated to have had the team up for sale in recent years, will be selling the franchise after 18 years of ownership.
Multiple reports say the Jaguars' new owner will be Shahid Khan, a Pakistani-American businessman. Kahn previously made a bid to buy the St. Louis Rams. Kahn owns an Illinois-based company called Flex-N-Gate, which manufactures auto parts. The team will be kept in Jacksonville.
