Jaguars Fire Head Coach Doug Marrone

The Jaguars made it official on Monday morning, a day after wrapping up a 1-15 season that head coach Doug Marrone would not be back for the 2021 season.

“I am committed and determined to deliver winning football to the City of Jacksonville,” Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a statement.

“Realizing that goal requires a fresh start throughout our football operations, and with that in mind I spoke this morning with Doug Marrone to express my gratitude for his hard work over the past four seasons as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“I’ll always appreciate Doug’s passion, grit and class, and I’m confident he will enjoy success in the next chapter of his career. As the search for our new general manager continues, now the quest begins to find a head coach who shares my ambition for the Jacksonville Jaguars and our fans, whose loyalty and faith are overdue to be rewarded.”

The 56-year-old Marrone was an interim head coach for the Jags the last two games of the 2016 season, and in 2017 led the team to a run to the AFC Title game, where they led the Patriots before falling in the end.

In four-plus seasons as the Jags head coach Marrone went 23-43.
