The Jacksonville Jaguars announced the official hirings of Tom Coughlin and Doug Marrone on Monday.
After serving as the team’s head coach from 1995-2002, Coughlin returns to Jacksonville to serve as the team’s executive vice president of football operations. He previously served as the head coach of the New York Giants from 2004-2015, winning two super bowls before being forced to resign. His career record as a head coach is 182-157, including playoffs.
Doug Marrone will be the team’s head coach after serving as interim coach and leading the team to a 1-1 record in the final two games of the 2016 season. With many stops in his coaching career, this is Marrone’s second shot as an NFL head coach, having coached the Buffalo Bills in the 2013 and 2014 seasons, finishing with a combined record of 16-18.
The Jaguars finished 3-13 in 2016, good for their sixth consecutive losing season. With one of the league’s youngest rosters, expectations will certainly be higher for Jacksonville in 2017.
