After four disappointing seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, head coach Gus Bradley was fired on Sunday following the 21-20 loss to the Houston Texans. Bradley held a record of 14 wins and 48 losses in the four seasons he served as the head coach. Coming into the 2016 season, the Jaguars were one of many teams to watch, as they made several signings in the offseason to improve their defense, signing players such as cornerback Prince Amukamara, defensive tackle Malik Jackson, and safety Tashaun Gipson. They also drafted cornerback Jalen Ramsey as the 5th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft and linebacker Myles Jack in the second round.
Jaguars’ owner Shahid Khan did give Bradley a one-year contract extension in the offseason, which was simply a gesture by Khan but did not solidify Bradley’s return to the team if they were in yet another losing record.
As of now, the Jaguars stand at 2-12 in last place in the AFC South division. There is no word on who will be the interim head coach for the Jaguars, but sources state it will most likely be either offensive line coach Doug Marrone or defensive backs coordinator DeWayne Walker.
Bradley’s future is unknown as of now. It is safe to say that he will not be a head coach for another NFL team.
