Despite being given another opportunity to take his team to the playoffs in 2010, the past two weeks have damaged Jack Del Rio's reputation. Amid reports that Del Rio's alma mater, USC, offered him the head-coaching position, and NFL Network reporting that Del Rio is not well liked in the Jaguars' organization, owner Wayne Weaver conducted what was described as the most extensive review ever of the team. While Weaver decided to bring Del Rio back, we hear he was very critical of Del Rio's work habits. Immediately following the review, Del Rio showed why he has fallen out of favor in Jacksonville. Two chairs were set up for Weaver's press conference, but Del Rio did not attend, electing not to address the media. Del Rio also did not appear at a team pep rally that evening with 1,000 Jaguars fans in attendance. Word is, Del Rio's absence at these events demonstrate his unwillingness to work on his relationship with the fans and his peers.
