Jaguars hire a pair of assistant coaches

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley tapped into his Seattle roots to fill a vacancy on his coaching staff.

According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the Jags hired Seahawks defensive quality control coach Robert Saleh as their new linebackers coach. He’ll replace Mark Duffner, who left to work for the Dolphins.

Bradley worked with Saleh when he was defensive coordinator of the Seahawks.

They also hired Scottie Hazelton as assistant linebackers coach. He was the defensive coordinator at Nevada last year, and work with Bradley at two college stops, Fort Lewis State and North Dakota State.
