According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, the Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to retain head coach Doug Marrone for the 2019 season. He will be given one more season to turn things around.
The 54-year-old Bronx, New York native guided the team to a 4-10 record going into the final two games of the season. The Jaguars are in last place of the AFC South standings.
Jacksonville has lost their last two games. Their last win came on December 2nd against the Indianapolis Colts in a 6-0 win.
The Jaguars won three of its first four games of the season. Then, things fell apart and the team lost seven straight games, before defeating the Colts.
As the Jaguars head coach, Marrone is 15-17. Almost one-year ago, he guided the team to the AFC Championship game before losing to the New England Patriots.
The 10-6 record under Marrone in 2017 was their best since an 11-5 record in 2007 under former head coach Jack Del Rio. In addition, the AFC Championship game appearance was their first since a 33-14 loss to the Tennessee Titans in 1999.
Marrone is 30-34 all-time as an NFL head coach. He also went 15-17 as the Buffalo Bills head coach in two seasons in 2013 and 2014.
This shows that owner Shad Khan and Executive Vice President of Football Operations Tom Coughlin have confidence in Marrone. The team was marred by injuries this season.
In addition, the team has had quarterback problems plaque them almost all season. Blake Bortles — who was the starter — is expected to be released. The team will also be in the hint for a new Offensive Coordinator.
