JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired DeJuan Polk as the team’s assistant director of pro personnel.

The team made the announcement Tuesday.

Polk joins the Jaguars staff after 10 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons (2006-15), most recently as the pro personnel coordinator in 2015. Prior to that, Polk spent three seasons (2012-14) as the director of pro scouting.

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell, who worked with Polk in Atlanta, says he knows “firsthand what (Polk) can bring to an organization. As a former player and coach, he has a unique eye for talent and will be a valuable asset for our personnel department.”

In 2005, Polk served as defensive tackles coach at South Carolina State.
