The Jacksonville Jaguars have gone to the Pacific Northwest to find their new head coach.
Reports surfaced Thursday morning that the team had hired Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley to become the new Jaguars coach.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed the news:

Bradley becomes the first defensive minded coach to accept a head coaching gig. He was able to do a brilliant job in Seattle and give his defensive unit a certain “swagger.”
Jacksonville will hope Bradley can bring that same attitude to their team.
