Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: New head coach should have significant say on Blake Bortles

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Blake Bortles' status could complicate new head coaching search for Jacksonville Jaguars -
The Jacksonville Jaguars' head-coach opening is attractive to candidates for a lot of reasons. There’s also one big reason why it might not be. It appears that general manager Dave Caldwell will be retained at least through 2017 -- owner Shad Khan said Caldwell will be "charged with exploring all options to hire the best head coach possible" -- and that the Jaguars will stick with quarterback Blake Bortles. This will make some candidates think twice about taking the job.

Potential head coaching replacements for Jacksonville Jaguars after Gus Bradley -
The Gus Bradley era in Jacksonville is over. Bradley was relieved of his duties after the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 21-20 loss to the Houston Texans. His career record as head coach ends at 14-48 — that’s a .226 career winning percentage. I’ve been critical of Bradley in the past, as many of you know. However, due to the kind of guy Bradley is as a person, I wish him the best in his future endeavors. Although there are still two weeks left in the season, I’m sure the Jaguars are already doing their homework on searching for a new head coach for the future. Here are some guys I think the team should reach out to.

How firing Gus Bradley will impact the Jacksonville Jaguars moving forward -
The right move was made on Sunday night. The Jaguars fired head coach Gus Bradley following a 21-20 loss to the Houston Texans. It was a long time coming and players admitted after the firing that it was an anticipated move in the locker room. At 2-12, the Jaguars haven't won a game at EverBank Field in a year and haven't won more than five games in a season since 2010.
