JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars have dismissed David Caldwell.

Caldwell, the Jaguars' general manager since 2013, was dismissed Sunday afternoon by Owner Shad Khan shortly after a 27-25 loss to the Cleveland Browns at TIAA Bank Field – the team's 10th consecutive loss, the longest single-season losing streak in franchise history.

"I've met with Dave Caldwell to express my appreciation for his service to the Jacksonville Jaguars as our general manager," Khan said in a statement released by the team.

"Dave was exceptionally committed and determined to bring a winner to Jacksonville, but unfortunately his efforts were not rewarded with the results our fans deserve and our organization expects. Our football operation needs new leadership, and we will have it with a new general manager in 2021."

The Jaguars are 1-10 this season.

Caldwell joined the organization in 2013 and was the final decision-maker regarding personnel from 2013-2016. Executive Vice President of Football Operations Tom Coughlin was the final decision-maker from 2017-2019, with Caldwell and Head Coach Doug Marrone reporting to Khan after Coughlin's dismissal late last season.
