Hampton was the long time equipment manager for the Jaguars and had a bit of a following with fans, as he interacted with them on Twitter on a regular basis. He also came from a family of equipment managers if you will, as both of his brothers were/are equipment managers and his father was an equipment manager for the New York Jets for almost 40 years.
As of now, there's no other information on the reason for the termination or who will replace Drew Hampton as the Jaguars new equipment manager. If anything develops, I will be sure to let you know.
