The Jacksonville Jaguars hired Gus Bradley as their new head coach, ESPN reported Thursday. Bradley has been the Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator for the past four years. He replaces Mike Mularkey, who was fired after just one season. The Jaguars were a franchise-worst 2-14 this season, dating back to 1995. Bradley, 46, has received praise from Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. "He's got a brilliant football mind," Carroll said last week. "He's got a way of reaching people and touching people and getting the best out of them, coaches and players alike. He's got everything that you're looking for." Seattle's defense finished first in the NFL with 15.3 points allowed per game, fourth in yards (306.2) and tied for fourth in takeaways (31) this season. In the past three years, the Seahawks improved defensively, finishing in the top 10 in points and yards allowed the last two seasons. Bradley started his began his NFL coaching career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a defensive quality control coach in 2006. He served as the team's linebackers coach the next two seasons before heading to the Seahawks. He spent the 16 previous seasons coaching at the college level, including two stints at North Dakota State and four years at Fort Lewis College.
