The Jaguars are currently in the middle of a season in complete free fall, having lost six straight games and going from contenders for the AFC title, to contending for a top-five draft pick in April.
Despite the team’s playoff hopes being all but shot by Thanksgiving, and a lot of grumblings from among the locker room and fan base about changes needing to be made in the off-season, we can expect at least the head coach to be the same in 2019,
Per NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport, the team has no plans on moving on from Doug Marrone come the season’s end.

This isn’t terribly surprising as Marrone has a trip to the AFC title game just a year ago to point to, as well as a recent contract extension given by owner Shad Khan last off-season.
The front office and coaching staff has already laid their case for this season’s failures as being attributed to an onslaught of injuries. Any fans looking for sweeping changes to come after the season ends, in terms of the main decision makers, are likely to be disappointed.
