By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired Tom Coughlin. He was the team’s Executive Vice President of Football Operations. He has been fired with two games left in the regular season. Now, General Manager David Caldwell and head coach Doug Marrone will report to owner Shad Khan. “Within the past hour, I informed Tom Coughlin that he was being relieved of his duties as Executive Vice President of Football Operations of the Jacksonville Jaguars, effective this evening,” Khan said in a statement. “I determined earlier this fall that making this move at the conclusion of the 2019 season would be in everyone’s best interests, but, in recent days, I reconsidered and decided to make this change immediately. I thank Tom for his efforts, not only over the past three years but for all he did from our very first season, 25 years ago, to put the Jacksonville Jaguars on the map. “My expectations, and those of our fans, for our final two games and the 2020 season are high.” Since Coughlin took over as the leader of Football Operations, the team went 20-26. In his first season, the team went 10-6 before losing in the Conference Championship 24-20 to the New England Patriots on Jan. 21, 2018. The last two seasons; however, things have went downhill. The team is just 10-20 during this time period. The Jaguars went 5-11 in 2018. This season, despite two games remaining, are just 5-9. “As head of football operations for the Jaguars the last three years, I was responsible for all things related to football,” Coughlin said in a statement. “I take great pride in our accomplishments, especially in 2017. I’d like to thank Shad Khan for the opportunity t come back to Jacksonville, all the players and staff for their efforts, and the great fans here for their support. “I was the first coach of this franchise and I will always be supportive of the Jaguars.”
