    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>It looks as if Mike Trgovac will be the Jaguars' new defensive coordinator.</p> <p>He's been with the Panthers since 2002, but his contract is up and he recently shifted gears. Pat&nbsp;Yasinskas over on the NFC South blog says Trgovac told the team he was going to <a href="/blogs/nfcsouth/0-7-130/Trgovac-leaving-Panthers-after-all.html" target="_blank">pursue other options</a>. Trgovac and Del Rio are good friends from their one year together in 2002, when Del Rio was Carolina's defensive coordinator and Trgovac was defensive line coach.</p> <p>Del Rio is coaching the South team at the Senior Bowl with a thin staff -- he has seven openings.</p> <p>Trgovac will bring some intrigue with him. While Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver has indicated the team is wary of free agency after big-dollar contracts for receiver Jerry Porter and cornerback Drayton Florence backfired, the team has a pass-rush issue and now has a tie to Carolina free-agent-to-be Julius Peppers.</p> <p>Peppers is unhappy and looking to leave. And contrary to popular opinion, I am told he and Trgovac get along just fine.</p> <p>Could the Jaguars, with $15 million in cap space, make a push for Peppers when free agency opens at the end of February?</p>
