"I'm excited to be heading to the UK to be a part of the Jaguars Academy," said Jaguars Wide Recievers Coach Keenan McCardell. "Despite being new to the Jaguars coaching staff, I'm really eager to see first-hand the growth of NFL in the U.K. so I can't wait to help prospective players and coaches continue to learn even more about the game of American football."

"We're really pleased Coach Wheatley and Coach McCardell are joining our line-up for the Jaguars Academy in the U.K." said Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone. "Their expertise and support will be hugely valuable, to continue to nurture British talent to learn more about the NFL.

The Jaguars Academy will be suited to players with at least a year of playing experience and who are ready to learn from the Jaguars staff and show what British talent is all about. Training will take place during the day, while the evenings will be dedicated to film review with the coaches, as every training session will be taped.
