With 'Considerable Work' Ahead, Bradley Stays On As Jags Head Coach
Jacksonville Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley gets another year to prove his worth.
Jags owner Shad Khan said in a statement issued Tuesday afternoon that Bradley deserves a lot of credit for the progress the team has made.
But "considerable work" remains to be done, he wrote, and “Gus understands that.”
Khan says he expects the team to respond favorably to the news that Bradley will stay on as head coach in 2016.
The Jaguars face the Texans in Houston Sunday afternoon. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
Here is the full statement from Shad Khan:
"I spoke to Gus Bradley today to confirm to him that he will continue as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2016. It's evident to see how far we've come in many aspects of our game, and Gus deserves a lot of credit for that progress. It's also evident the considerable work that remains to be done to be where we expect to be at this time next season, which is well above where we stand today. And Gus understands that. Dave Caldwell and I also spoke today and we are both confident that Gus will make 2016 the best year of his career. In the meantime, I expect his coaching staff and team to respond favorably to this news in preparation for Houston on Sunday and then begin thinking about what more they can provide next season. We have high ambitions."
