Gus Bradley is the new head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
That’s the word from ESPN’s Adam Schefter and FOX’s Jay Glazer, who reported on Thursday morning that Bradley had accepted the Jaguars’ head-coaching position.
Bradley, a defensive coordinator who spent the last four years on the Seahawks’ staff, became a hot coaching candidate after Seattle’s defense went on a dominant run down the stretch in the regular season.
Bradley was believed to be the Eagles’ choice if they hadn’t been able to convince Chip Kelly to leave Oregon. As it turned out, even though Bradley lost out on the Philadelphia job, it took him less than 24 hours to become coach of the Jaguars.
