Jaguars fire Bradley af­ter 4th-quar­ter col­lapse at Tex­ans

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS - SPORTS BRIEFS

The Jack­sonville Jaguars fired Gus Bradley, end­ing the least suc­cess­ful coach­ing ten­ure in NFL his­tory.

Owner Shad Khan an­nounced the de­ci­sion fol­low­ing a 21-20 loss at Hous­ton on Sun­day, a game in which the Jaguars (2-12) blew a nine-point lead in the fourth quar­ter. Khan con­sid­ered the move in late Oc­to­ber, fol­low­ing a de­ba­cle at Ten­nessee on national television, but opted to keep Bradley for seven more weeks.

Bradley went 14-48 in four sea­sons in Jack­sonville, the worst win­ning per­cent­age (.225) of any NFL coach with at least 60 games.

The Jaguars were sup­posed to be con­sid­er­ably im­proved this sea­son, but now have lost nine in a row. It’s the long­est, sin­gle-sea­son los­ing streak in fran­chise his­tory. Bradley flew home on the team char­ter. Gen­eral man­ager Dave Cald­well will name an in­terim coach for the fi­nal two games Monday. It’s likely to be of­fen­sive line coach Doug Mar­rone or de­fen­sive backs coach De­Wayne Walker.
