Default Tice will become Jaguars' assistant head coach

Tice will become Jaguars' assistant head coach

Mike Tice, fired after the season as head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, has accepted an offer to become assistant head coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars under Jack Del Rio, according to ESPN.com's John Clayton.

The agreement came Tuesday after Tice met with Del Rio on Monday. The two played together with the Vikings in the early 1990s. Tice was a tight end; Del Rio a linebacker.

The Star Tribune in Minneapolis reported Tuesday on its Web site that Tice told the newspaper he agreed to take a position with Jacksonville. He would not say what his title will be, pending an announcement from the team.

The Jaguars also promoted Andy Heck to offensive line coach. He had been assistant offensive line coach.

The interest in Tice could mean the end of Paul Boudreau's three-year stint as Jacksonville's offensive line coach.

The Jaguars refused Tuesday to comment on Boudreau's job status. Tice was the offensive line coach in Minnesota before becoming the team's head coach.

Tice took over in Minnesota when Dennis Green resigned with one game remaining in the 2000 season. He became the head coach the following year and was 33-34 when he was fired at the end of the 2005 season.

Tice's final season with the Vikings was filled with controversy.

He was fined $100,000 by the league for scalping his Super Bowl tickets. The team started 1-4 and was involved in a scandalous boat party that resulted in charges against four players. The Vikings finished the season 9-7 and missed the playoffs.

Tice interviewed this month with the New York Jets about their head coaching vacancy, but the job went to Eric Mangini.

Jacksonville now has two coaches...one looks like a young Rodney Dangerfield(Del Rio) and the other looks and sounds like Lurch from the Addams Family(Tice).
