The Jacksonville Jaguars weren’t done after hiring Doug Marrone to be the next head coach, also making a front office move with Tom Coughlin.
While everyone was commiserating over the news of the Jaguars hiring interim head coach Doug Marrone for the full time gig, the team pulled a fast one with the front office:
Unsurprisingly, this was also followed by news of the Jaguars extending general manager David Caldwell.
We’ll have more as this develops, but the Jaguars aren’t done making decisions. Marrone is likely to keep offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and some of the offensive staff, but there could be wholesale changes on defense.
Also, while Caldwell said publicly that playing Bortles wasn’t a mandate, he clearly favored a head coach who believed in Bortles and would give him every chance to succeed. With this news, it’s probably safe to assume that Tom Coughlin must also believe in Bortles to some extent – at least going into 2017.
What a day.
