The Jacksonville Jaguars have promoted Doug Marrone to be their full time head coach.  Marrone, the Jaguars offensive line coach this season, took over after former head coach Gus Bradley was fired back in week 15.  The previous Buffalo Bills coach is famous for utilizing a clause in his contract that allowed him to leave the Bills organization in search of another head coaching job while still getting paid for the 2015 season.  It will be interesting to see whether Marrone will be able to try and salvage quarterback Blake Bortles or if he decides to draft ‘his guy’ for 2017.

In other news; the Jaguars also hired Tom Coughlin as Executive VP of Football Operations.  Coughlin, most recently the long time head coach of the New York Giants, served as the head coach of the Jaguars from 1995-2002.
