Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley’s job with the team is safe at least until the next season, according to reports.
Unnamed sources told Ian Rapoport of NFL.com that barring any essential collapse from the team in the next few seasons Bradley will remain the head coach for the Jaguars, which has started the 2015 regular season with two wins in the first seven games.
"Bradley may have taken over the worst roster in the NFL, so they are going to exhibit patience with him and with their regime. They fixed the offense this year, expect them to focus on the defense next year," Rapoport said via NFL.com.
This is Bradley's first stint as head coach. He previously served as the linebackers coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2006 to 2008 and the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks from 2009 to 2012 before moving to the Jaguars as head coach in 2013.
Jacksonville is just 2-5 this season, but good enough to be tied for second place in the struggling AFC South. The division leaders are the Indianapolis Colts (3-4), which are just one game ahead of the Jaguars and Houston Texans. The Jaguars are coming off a 34-31 win over the Buffalo Bills in an NFL road game in London to notch their second victory of the season.
Jacksonville lost the season opener to the Carolina Panthers (20-9) but won against the Miami Dolphins (23-20) in Week 2. They snapped a four game losing skid, with losses to the New England Patriots (51-17), Colts (16-13), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (38-31) and Texans (31-20), before the win against the Buffalo Bills last Sunday.
