Report: Jaguars coach Doug Marrone gone after season

The Jaguars deny it, but Doug Marrone’s time as HC could be short-lived.

Doug Marrone will get his walking papers after the Jaguars finish out their season against the Colts according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini. The Jaguars deny this and have issued a statement saying, “Reports that Doug Marrone will be dismissed after Sunday’s game are 100 percent incorrect.”

Marrone took over as the Jaguars head coach in 2016 as an interim before helping the team to a 10-6 record and an AFC Championship game in 2017. He helped the team become a dominant defense but could never get the offense going under Blake Bortles and now the duo of Nick Foles and Gardner Minshew at quarterback.

A 5-11 record last season, an altercation with start cornerback Jalen Ramsey and his subsequent trade and another losing season in 2019 to go along with a culture led by executive VP Tom Coughlin that illegally fined players, all points to owner Shad Khan clearing house.
