Jacksonville Jaguars hire Gus Bradley as head coach

January 17, 2013

The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Gus Bradley to become the fifth head coach in franchise history. Bradley, 46, was the defensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks for the past four seasons, playing a vital role in the team’s two recent playoff appearances.

“It was just a matter of time before Gus Bradley became a head coach in the NFL,” Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said, “and the Jacksonville Jaguars are extremely fortunate that Gus will be on our sidelines for many years to come.  Gus more than met every criteria we insisted on from our new head coach, and his intangibles and leadership abilities are exceptional.  Gus is who the Jaguars need now and in the future.”

Although Bradley will be leaving a Super Bowl contender for a Jaguars team plagued by multiple deficiencies on both sides of the ball, he nevertheless  expressed his enthusiasm for starting his first NFL head coaching gig.

“I am very proud to accept the offer to be the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars,” Bradley said. “Shad Khan and Dave Caldwell expect to win, and that’s what I wanted to hear.  That’s why I am coming to Jacksonville – to win a Super Bowl.  I can’t wait to meet everyone in Jacksonville on Friday and get this going.”
