Jaguars hire Seahawks’ Bradley as coach

– The Jacksonville Jaguars have an energetic head coach to go along with their brash general manager.

The Jaguars hired Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley as the franchise’s fifth head coach Thursday, the latest move in the team’s rebuilding project.

Bradley, 46, joins general manager Dave Caldwell, who led the coaching search after being hired last week.

“It was just a matter of time before Gus Bradley became a head coach in the NFL, and the Jacksonville Jaguars are extremely fortunate that Gus will be on our sidelines for many years to come,” Caldwell said in a statement.

Bradley spent the last four seasons in Seattle, earning a reputation as a fiery assistant who demanded – and often got – the most from his players. His defense improved each of the last three years and finished in the top 10 in points and yards the last two.

Seattle filled its vacant defensive coordinator position by hiring Dan Quinn away from Florida.
