Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan met with coaches and players this week in an attempt to figure out just why his team was not winning more football games.
The Jaguars responded with an absolute dud Thursday night in Nashville against the Tennessee Titans. Jacksonville fell behind 27-0 in the first half. Dante Fowler Jr. picked up a personal foul for a pseudo punch to an Titans player just four days after Mailk Jackson (personal foul accumulation) and Jalen Ramsey (fighting) were ejected against Oakland.
Head coach Gus Bradley is now 14-41 during his tenure in Jacksonville. With 10 days before the Jaguars have to play again, the question is whether Khan would look to make a change at head coach.
According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Khan said there will not be a coaching change following Thursday night’s 36-22 loss.
However, Khan also said “actions speak louder than words. Very little for me to say.”
Unless something drastic changes, Bradley’s time in Jacksonville would seem to be running short. Changing coaches in season likely won’t do anything significant and a real change won’t realistically be possible until January at the earliest. But having your previous head coach, Mike Mularkey, hand your team a beat down like the Jaguars experienced Thursday night can’t sit well with Khan.
There’s enough talent on the roster now that Jacksonville should be beyond these types of performances. If they can’t make a change with Bradley at the helm, they’ll probably be making changes without him in the near future.
