Jacksonville Jaguars new head coach Gus Bradley has been impressing people left and right since he came into the spotlight thanks to general manager Dave Caldwell. Bradley has put together a number of solid years as a defensive coach, but with his arrival in Jacksonville as the head guy he has been lighting up the media and impressing those around him.
The annual owner meetings were no exception. In Phoenix Bradley’s charm, upbeat manner, and enthusiastic competitiveness caught the attention of those in the league and those covering it. There is a really good feeling coming out of Jacksonville and Bradley is a major cause of that. John Oehser of the team’s website said, “Since his hiring as Jaguars head coach in January, he has shown at each public appearance the ability to energize and excite. At the AFC Coaches breakfast in Phoenix, the media again was buzzing about the guy.”
While everyone apparently buzzes and impresses according to Oehser, almost all reports from people actively covering the NFL have Bradley as an impressive presence and energetic, engaging new coach. He is putting Jacksonville back on the map and we’re not even to the draft yet.
