Fired Bradley Regrets Not Sticking Around to See Jaguars Win; Doug Marrone named interim coach
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Gus Bradley's one regret is he won't be around to see the Jacksonville Jaguars win consistently.
Meeting with local media for more than 35 minutes the day after he was fired as Jacksonville's head coach, Bradley says "I'd just like to be here with this team when it's successful."
Bradley held court inside a conference room at the Sawgrass Marriott. He says, "The regret I have is not seeing these players (win). When you go through something that's hard and then you come through it and you have success and you say, 'That's why we do it. Look at where it took you."
Owner Shad Khan fired Bradley following the team's ninth consecutive loss Sunday, ending one of the least successful coaching tenures in NFL history. Bradley went 14-48 in four seasons in Jacksonville, the worst winning percentage (.225) of any NFL coach with at least 60 games.
