Jaguars Fire Tom Coughlin

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Wednesday that they’ve fired executive VP Tom Coughlin

Here’s a statement from Jaguars owner Shad Khan regarding the decision:

Coughlin has released a statement thanking the organization for the opportunity. 

Recent reports have said that major changes are likely coming to Jacksonville this offseason. 

News surfaced earlier in the week that the NFLPA won an arbitration grievance against the Jaguars after the team attempted to mandate all players receive offseason rehab at the team facility. Coughlin was clearly a central figure in this matter, so it’s not surprising that he’s out in Jacksonville. 

Coughlin, 73, spent eight years as the Jaguars head coach before eventually being hired by the Giants. He would go on coach New York for 12 seasons and led them to a record of 102-90 (53.1 percent) to go along with five playoff appearances and two Super Bowl titles.

Coughlin returned to the Jaguars in 2017 after he and the Giants agreed to mutually part ways. 

Since returning to the Jaguars, the team has produced a record of 20-26, which include one playoff appearance and one trip to the AFC Championship game.
