Coach Jack Del Rio added three coaches to his staff today. They are quarterbacks coach Ken Anderson, defensive backs coach Alvin Reynolds and linebackers coach Mike Haluchak.
Anderson, 53, was a star quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals in the 1970s and early-'80s. He was a member of the Bengals' coaching staff for the last 10 years and served as Cincinnati's quarterbacks coach for the last two seasons. He was the Bengals' offensive coordinator from 1996-2000. Anderson joined the club's staff as quarterbacks coach in 1993 after spending six years as a Cincinnati sportscaster.
He still holds the Bengals' all-time record in completions (2,654), passing yards (32,838) and touchdown passes (197). Twice he has been among the 15 finalists for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He holds the NFL record for highest completion percentage in a season, 70.55 in 1982. Anderson won four NFL passing titles, which is tied for third-most all-time behind Sammy Baugh and Steve Young, and was named four times to the Pro Bowl.
Reynolds, 43, has a decade of coaching experience, having worked in Denver, Baltimore and Carolina. After three years as a defensive assistant in Denver, Reynolds moved to Baltimore where he coached the secondary for three seasons before going to Carolina, where he spent the past four seasons as a defensive assistant. Reynolds has worked with some of the top defensive backs in the NFL, including safety Steve Atwater in Denver and Rod Woodson in Baltimore.
A star safety at Indiana State from 1978-81, Reynolds played well enough as a senior to receive votes for the Heisman trophy.
Haluchak is a veteran of 23 coaching seasons, including 17 in the NFL. He comes to Jacksonville after spending the past three seasons as linebackers coach with the St. Louis Rams. Haluchak began his NFL coaching career in San Diego (1986-1991), before coaching stints with the Cincinnati Bengals (1992-93), Washington Redskins (1994-96), and New York Giants (1997-99).
He began his career as a high school coach in Southern California in 1972, then entered the collegiate ranks as a graduate assistant at USC in '77. His first tour as a linebackers coach came at Pacific University in '79.
Haluchak was a linebacker and safety at the USC and played in the 1969 and 1970 Rose Bowl games for the Trojans.
Del Rio now has six assistant coaches on his staff.
