Jaguars fire coach Doug Marrone after 15th consecutive loss

The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired coach Doug Marrone a little more than 12 hours after ending the season with a 15th consecutive loss. It was a move many thought owner Shad Khan should have made at the end of 2019. But Khan gave Marrone another chance to make Jacksonville a playoff contender. Marrone came up well short of the owner’s expectations. That made Khan’s decision easy and expected. The Jaguars canceled Marrone’s season-ending news conference scheduled for Monday and planned to make Khan available on a conference call. Marrone went 24-43 in four seasons.
