Seahawks Success Means Coaching Changes

Seahawks.com image

The Seahawks success means that some of Pete Carroll’s assistant coaches are top candidates for vacant NFL head coaching jobs. One of those assistants will be the new head coach in Jacksonville.

 

Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley was named as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday. Bradley becomes the fifth head coach in the Jaguars history. He replaces Mike Mularkey, who went 2-14 in his only season as Jacksonville’s head coach.

Bradley spent the last four seasons in Seattle, earning a reputation as an assistant who demanded – and often got – the most from his players. His defense improved each of the last three years and finished in the top 10 in points and yards the last two. This season, the Seahawks ranked first in points allowed (15.3), fourth in yards (306.2) and tied for fourth in takeaways (31).

The Jaguars were 30th in the league in total defense in 2012.

To replace Bradley, the Seahawks tapped Dan Quinn as their new defensive coordinator.

Quinn, Seattle’s  defensive line coach in 2009-10, spent the past two seasons as the defensive coordinator at the University of Florida.
