The Jacksonville Jaguars have a short but decorated franchise over their 23-year history. They’re tied with the Carolina Panthers for the quickest franchise to reach the playoffs (and respective conference title games) and they have players like David Garrard in the top tier of all-time single season categories like passing interception percentage and players like Fred Taylor, Jimmy Smith, Keenan McCardell, and Tony Boselli in all-time career categories such as rushing yards, receiving yards, receptions, and sacks allowed.
But there is one thing the Jaguars have on every team in modern NFL history — they employed the head coach with the worst winning percentage ever.
Bradley was hired in 2013 to completely rebuild a Jaguars team that wasn’t very good. He partnered with general manager Dave Caldwell and the two went to work building this team from the ground up — releasing every single player from before they were hired with the exception of tight end Marcedes Lewis, linebacker Paul Posluszny, quarterback Chad Henne, and defensive lineman Tyson Alualu.
But the experiment failed. There were just 14 wins in 55 games — which gives Bradley just a .254 winning percentage. Statistically speaking it’s the worst a head coach has done in the modern era of the NFL with at least
The bright side? It led to the team promoting Doug Marrone to head coach at the end of the 2016 season and the team’s first AFC Championship Game since 1999 while earning a .611 winning percentage along the way.
It’s a small sample size, but .611 is above the likes of Bill Walsh and Tom Landry — and certainly above any other Jaguars head coach as Tom Coughlin finished at .531, Jack Del Rio finished at .489, and Mike Mularkey finished at .125.
