Jaguars, Panthers switch offensive line coaches

By Len Pasquarelli

First-year head coach Jack Del Rio has filled yet another important spot on his Jacksonville staff, hiring veteran offensive line coach Paul Boudreau away from the Carolina Panthers.

And the Panthers wasted little time replacing Boudreau, adding Michael Maser, who was with the Jaguars from their 1995 expansion season until the departure of head coach Tom Coughlin last month. Maser, 55, had been considering jobs with the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills.

The result of the switch leaves both teams with outstanding line mentors.

Boudreau, 53, is a 16-year NFL veteran who spent the last two seasons with Carolina. His resumé includes stints in New Orleans (1987-93), Detroit (1994-96), New England (1997-98) and Miami (1999-2000), in addition to his two seasons with the Panthers.

According to The Associated Press, Del Rio added to his staff Wednesday with Alvin Reynolds to handle the defensive backs and Mike Haluchak to oversee the linebackers.

Reynolds spent the past four seasons as a defensive assistant with Carolina. He previously spent three years as a defensive assistant with Denver and later coached the secondary for three years in Baltimore.

A 17-year NFL coaching veteran, Haluchak has spent the past three years coaching the St. Louis Rams' linebackers. Haluchak also had coaching stints with San Diego, Cincinnati, Washington and the New York Giants.

Maser was a long-time college coach who was on Coughlin's staff at Boston College before joining him in Jacksonville.
