Miami OC Jedd Fisch leaving 'Canes for Jacksonville.

Miami's offense will be tutored by a new leader in 2013.

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE

Jedd Fisch is returning to his roots, much to the chagrin of UM fans who grew to love the efficiency he brought to Miami's offense.

Fisch who previously worked for the Seahawks, Ravens, Broncos, and Texans, reportedly will take the offensive coordinator position with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As reported by ESPN's Adam Shafter:

@AdamSchefter: Another college coach has turned pro. University of Miami OC Jedd Fisch will become Jaguars' OC, reuniting with Jacksonville HC Gus Bradley.

Our take: Well we all knew this day would come eventually. Fisch came to UM with an NFL background, and it always felt like a matter of time before he returned there. Fisch got more out of Jacory Harris in his senior season then any of his predecessors, and Stephen Morris made great strides under him in 2012. It will be critical for Miami to hire someone equally effective at not only play calling, but teaching the QB position. Morris is a senior this year, and his replacement is guaranteed to be a young player. Let's hope Al Golden and the 'Canes hit the jackpot again with their next OC.

Much more to come on Miami's search for a new OC in the coming days/weeks.
