Jacksonville Jaguars fire seven [more] coaches after 3-13 campaign
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Offensive and defensive coordinators Nathaniel Hackett and Todd Wash might be safe for now, but the Jacksonville Jaguars gutted its staff Tuesday.
Among those looking for new jobs are: wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, assistant wide receivers coach Tony Sorrentino, defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker, linebackers coach Robert Saleh, assistant linebackers coach Scottie Hazelton, assistant defensive line coach Aaron Whitecotton, and assistant defensive backs coach Daniel Bullocks, according to multiple reports.
The Jaguars hired Tom Coughlin as its executive vice president of football operations and signed general manager Dave Caldwell to a two-year extension Monday. Doug Marrone was also hired as the team's head coach this week.
The Jaguars had the second-worst third down conversion percentage and second most penalties in the AFC. Mistake-prone Blake Bortles also led the team to the second-worst turnover differential in the conference. The Jaguars also allowed the fourth-most points in the conference, surrendering 25 points per game.
Jacksonville [3-13] is slated to have the No. 4 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
