Gus Bradley's father passes, will join Jaguars in London Wednesday

Doug Pensinger

The father of Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley passed away on Sunday evening, so he will not travel with the team to London and will join them on Wednesday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have had to deal with a lot of adversity so far in the 2013 NFL season, but head coach Gus Bradley lost his father, Roy Bradley, late Sunday evening from natural causes.

"Unfortunately coach Bradley's father passed away last night at the age of 85 years old," Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell announced Monday afternoon. "Roy James Bradley. I just ask that you guys keep your thoughts and your prayers with coach Bradley and his family. He will not be making the trip with us to London, but we expect him to rejoin the team later this week."

Bradley did not travel with the team on Monday, but will join them on Wednesday, as he takes a few days to deal with his father's passing. In his absence, defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker will serve as interim head coach.
