JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars extended Gus Bradley’s contract early Friday.
Bradley, originally hired as the Jaguars’ head coach in January 2013, has signed a one-year contract extension through 2017. The team announced the extension Friday morning.
“For an organization that we believe is ready to make its move, extending Gus through the 2017 season provides our club with much-needed stability in every respect,” General Manager Dave Caldwell said in a statement. “It solidifies Gus’ good standing with our current players, provides certainty for free agents who may be considering the Jaguars and helps to deliver the continuity throughout our coaching staff that we think is critical for us to turn the corner.
“It also gives us the best opportunity to win in 2016. I appreciate [Jaguars Owner] Shad [Khan] supporting this approach as we enter a pivotal season with high expectations at every level of the organization.”
