The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired a new head coach. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting this morning that the jaguars have hired former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. Bradley was once considered a front runner for the head coaching job with the Philadelphia Eagles, interviewing twice with the team. Bradley left Philadelphia yesterday without the job and shortly after, the Eagles announced they hired Oregon head coach Chip Kelly.
Bradley has never held a head coaching position in the NFL. He started his coaching career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2006. He was hired as a defensive quality control coach and eventually became the team’s linebackers coach. In 2009, he was hired to become the defensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks.
Bradley’s defense in 2012 finished the season ranked fourth overall.
