By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired head coach Doug Marrone. He spent four plus seasons leading the team.

He was 23-43 during his tenure. In his final campaign with the team in 2020, he guided the Jaguars to a 1-15 record.

The Jaguars considered dismissing Marrone last off-season. However, they elected to keep him for one more season.

“I am committed and determined to deliver winning football to the City of Jacksonville,” Jaguars owner Shad Khan said the statement. “Realizing that goal requires a fresh start throughout our football operations, and with that in mind, I spoke this morning with Doug Marrone to express my gratitude for his hard work over the past four seasons as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. I’ll always appreciate Doug’s passion, grit and class, and I’m confident he will enjoy success in the next chapter of his career.

“As the search for our new general manager continues, now the quest begins to find a head coach who shares my ambition for the Jacksonville Jaguars and our fans, whose loyalty and faith are overdue to be rewarded.”

The Jaguars are looking for a head coach and a general manager. Dave Caldwell was fired by the Jaguars on November 28th.

After defeating the Colts in their season opener, the Jaguars lost 15 straight games to end the season. The 15-game losing streak is the longest in team history.

In his first full season, Marrone guided the Jaguars to an AFC Conference Championship game during the 2017 season. The New England Patriots defeated the Jaguars in the game.

In his final three seasons with the team, he went 12-36.
