Shortly after it was announced that Gus Bradley was hired as the head coach of the Jaguars, Mark Long of the Associated Press reported that the team intends to fly Bradley and his family in on Thursday so that the team can introduce him at a press conference on Friday.

Bradley, 46, played football at North Dakota State University, doubling as a free safety and punter, before joining the coaching ranks as a graduate assistant at NDSU in 1990. By 1992, Bradley was the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach for Fort Lewis for four seasons before re-joining NDSU in 1996.

It wasn't until 2006 that Bradley joined the NFL ranks as a defensive quality control coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was promoted to linebackers coach one season later and in 2009 received the defensive coordinator job in Seattle.

The 2012 Seahawks allowed the fewest points in the NFL and advanced to the playoffs, but were eliminated in the divisional round of the playoffs by the Atlanta Falcons.
