Just when you thought it was done, the Jacksonville Jaguars have made more changes to the franchise.

This time, it's on the coaching staff, where wide receivers coach Johnny Cox was fired Wednesday evening, hours after the team released receiver Jason Hill and a day after firing head coach Jack Del Rio.

Cox led an abysmal group of wide receivers this season, as the Jaguars arguably had the worst receiving corps in the NFL.

With Mel Tucker now at the helm, the Jaguars have made some shifts in reaction to firing Cox, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mike Sheppard, the team's quarterback coach, will coach receivers now and offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter will coach quarterbacks in addition to his regular OC duties.
