New Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone will reportedly keep the entire defensive coaching staff, according to Albert Breer of MMQB.com.
Jacksonville defensive coaches were told previously that they'd be retained if Doug Marrone were to get the job.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 9, 2017
It’s puzzling to say the least that the defensive coaches would be retained. Davon House went on record saying he thought the coaches had something “personal” against him. Dante Fowler said he felt like a “caged animal”. Jalen Ramsey said he felt “caged” this year as well and specifically pointed fingers at the coaches. Tashaun Gipson called himself a “babysitter” and said he was miscast in this scheme.
And you can’t say that the defense was held back only while Gus Bradley was the head coach. Defensive coordinator Todd Wash called a truly terrible game in Week 17 against the Indianapolis Colts when he went conservative and prevent in the second half, allowing Andrew Luck & Co. to win the game.
