Doug Marone is out in Jacksonville.
After reaching the AFC Championship game three years ago with one of the most promising young rosters in the NFL, the Jaguars are back to the bottom of the barrel.
The Jaguars had their worst season in franchise history in 2020, securing the No. 1 overall pick in the draft for the first time.
Team owner Shad Kahn decided now was a good time to move in a different direction with his coach as the rebuild begins.
