Ravens' Savage to interview for Jaguars' front office job

Harris also is candidate for club's GM-type position

The Ravens' front office is apparently held in high regard by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Phil Savage, the Ravens' director of college scouting, is scheduled to interview with Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver tomorrow for an executive position with the club.

James Harris, the Ravens' director of pro personnel, talked with Weaver on Tuesday, which means two of Jacksonville's four candidates are from the Ravens' organization.

The position, which became open with the firing of Tom Coughlin, is expected to entail general manager-type duties.

"That speaks to the success that we've had," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "That goes right along with why there are so many coaches that have come from Bill Walsh, Denny Green and Bill Parcells. When you have some success, people tend to become very interested in your people."

The other confirmed candidates are Buffalo Bills assistant GM Tom Modrak and the Jaguars' director of personnel, Rick Reiprish.

Harris and Savage interviewing with the same team is not a new situation. Two years ago, the Chicago Bears looked at both for their GM position.
