ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Chargers and former Jaguars HC Gus Bradley have agreed to deal for him to become their next defensive coordinator.
According to Schefter, Bradley was a big defensive coordinator domino, considering that he had interest from multiple teams. With Bradley now under contract, Schefter expects other teams to move quickly to hire some of the other available options.
Earlier reports from today mentioned that the 49ers were still in pursuit of Bradley to run their defense and even upped their offer to him.
However, it appears as though the Chargers and new HC Anthony Lynn were able to close the deal in the end.
Bradley interviewed with both the Chargers and Redskins and reports from earlier in the week said that the Chargers were the “front-runners” to hire him, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.
Bradley, 50, was hired by the Jaguars back in 2013 after he spent four years with the Seahawks. In four years with the Jaguars, Bradley produced a record of 14-47 (23 percent) and no playoff appearances. The Jaguars’ most wins under Bradley was five from last year.
