Jaguars’ Bradley leaves team following dad’s death
JACKSONVILLE, Florida (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley has left the team following his father’s death, but is expected to join them in London later this week.
Bradley headed home to Zumbrota, Minnesota, on Monday to be with his family, turning interim coaching duties over to secondary coach DeWayne Walker. Bradley’s father, Roy James Bradley, died Sunday night following a lengthy illness. He was 85.
The Jaguars (0-7) are flying to London later Monday and spending the week there before playing defending NFC champion San Francisco. Bradley could join up with them as soon as Wednesday.
Walker spent the last four seasons as head coach at New Mexico State University.
Walker says, “I’m going to sit in the chair for maybe a day and a half.”
