Mary Garrard isn't shy about giving advice to the Jaguars' coaches in a joking manner.

Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and quarterback coach Mike Shula were at a recent birthday party for the Jaguars quarterback's son, Justin, when David Garrard suggested his wife give them her views.

"I said, 'Here's a great time to tell the coaches what you've been trying to tell me.' She was laughing with them and joking with them, and they know Mary. They know how she is and the competitor she is. It was more joking than anything," David Garrard said. "She knows I like to move around and run around a little bit more. She was just saying we've got to see that some more and see you running around a little bit. Not that she was coaching up our coaches or anything."

Garrard said his wife has been watching him play since he was a sophomore in college at East Carolina.

"My wife is very into the game. She understands the game," Garrard said.
