Jacksonville Jaguars players have revealed their delight that head coach Gus Bradley will return for the final year of his contract.
Jags owner Shad Khan revealed on Tuesday that Bradley would return for a fourth season, despite a disappointing 2015 campaign in which Jacksonville has won just five of their 15 games so far.
"I'm happy he's back," cornerback Davon House said. "I love him as a coach, I love him even more as a person. He makes us better. I'm sure everybody in this locker room is excited he's back."
The Jaguars will face the Houston Texans in Sunday's season finale but ruined any chance of contending for the AFC South title after after losing four of their last five games.
Despite that Khan has seen enough improvement, particularly on offense, not to make a change at the top of the coaching ladder.
Defensive tackle Roy Miller also endorsed Bradley's return, adding: "No doubt. We feel like Gus has created a great culture and we just need to take advantage of it as individuals on this team."
Jags offensive coordinator Greg Olson believes the team will be able to put aside talk of Bradley's future during the course of his final year in 2016, adding: "I don't think you think that way.
"You control the things you can control and try to make the right decisions in terms of what we're doing on offense, defense and special teams and evaluating the talent to put the pieces together next year."
