Reports: Jaguars tab Bradley as next coach
Jacksonville, FL (Sports Network) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have reportedly selected Gus Bradley as their new head coach.
Numerous media outlets, including ESPN, Fox Sports and the Florida Times- Union, said the two sides are working out final contract details before it becomes official.
Bradley spent the past four seasons as defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks. He would replace Mike Mularkey, who was fired last Thursday by new Jaguars general manger Dave Caldwell after a disastrous 2-14 season.
Caldwell also reportedly interviewed Mel Tucker, Jay Gruden and Brian Schottenheimer in addition to Bradley.
It was thought Bradley might be the choice in Philadelphia and reports even circulated that he was close to a deal with the Eagles earlier this week, but Chip Kelly had a change of heart and decided to leave Oregon to replace Andy Reid in Philly.
The Seahawks had the top scoring defense in the NFL this season, allowing just 15.3 points per game. Seattle's season came to a close this past Sunday with a 30-28 loss to Atlanta in the NFC Divisional Playoffs.
