Update: Ian Rapoport notes that Jaguars owner Shad Khan has spoken with head coach Doug Marrone following the game, advising that he and his coaching staff will remain in place until the conclusion of the 2020 NFL season.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have relieved general manager Dave Caldwell of his duties following the team’s two-point loss to the Cleveland Browns Sunday. Trent Baalke will take over as interim GM, per Tom Pelissero.

This appears to be just the first step towards the team’s full rebuild after starting the 2020 NFL Season 1-10. Head coach Doug Marrone has not been let go, but it seems a decent bet given how this season is going. The Jaguars have seven picks within the first four rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft, including the Rams’ first and fourth rounders and the Vikings’ second-round pick. They are currently in line for the No. 2 overall pick behind the New York Jets.

Caldwell has been with the team since January of 2013 and have had just one winning season in that time in 2017, when the Jaguars went 10-6. They’ve finished in fourth place in the AFC South in four of the last five seasons.
