(NEW YORK) — Former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley will become the new head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to league sources, reports ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Bradley will take over a team that went 2-14 in 2012, the worst in franchise history.
“He’s got a brilliant football mind,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said last week of Bradley. “He’s got a way of reaching people and touching people and getting the best out of them, coaches and players alike. He’s got everything that you’re looking for.”
Bradley will take over a team that lost by 16 points or more than eight times in 2012, but Jacksonville is hoping the 46-year-old will bring his defensive mind along.
Under Bradley’s watch, the Seahawks defense finished first in the NFL in points allowed with 15.3. The Arizona Cardinals are the only team remaining in the NFL that still need a head coach.
