Jaguars give Bradley one-year extension
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars have given coach Gus Bradley a one-year contract extension and promoted Todd Wash to defensive coordinator.
The team made the announcements Friday and scheduled a news conference for later in the day.
The Jaguars also promoted Tony Sorrentino to assistant receivers coach, promoted Aaron Whitecotton to assistant defensive line coach and hired Daniel Bullocks as assistant defensive backs coach.
Bradley is 12-36 in three seasons, and general manager Dave Caldwell says extending him ”solidifies Gus’ good standing with our current players, provides certainty for free agents who may be considering the Jaguars and helps to deliver the continuity throughout our coaching staff that we think is critical for us to turn the corner.”
Wash replaces Bob Babich, who was fired earlier this month after Jacksonville gave up the second-most points (448) in franchise history.
