The Jaguars have retained wide receiver coach Jerry Sullivan and linebacker coach Mark Duffner.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have decided to retain wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan and linebacker coach Mark Duffner, according to a report by Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. The status of both coaches was up in the air after the Jaguars began losing some coaches to other teams in the transition from Mike Mularkey to Gus Bradley.

Sullivan had been drawing some interest from other teams, including the Arizona Cardinals. There is a connection there with wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, but it appears the Jaguars will be able to hang on to the coach who helped along the careers of both Cecil Shorts III and rookie Justin Blackmon.

Duffner will also be retained, though talk surrounding where he could be going was quiet. He has been on the Jaguars staff the past seven seasons, but will be entering his eighth season with the Jaguars and on his third different head coach. The fact that Duffner has been retained through so many changes lends to his ability as a position coach.
