Jaguars fire offensive coordinator Greg Olson

Saturday October 29th, 2016

The Jaguars have fired offensive coordinator Greg Olson, the team announced.

Head coach Gus Bradley told reporters on Friday that he did not anticipate changes to the coaching staff following the Jaguars’ loss to Tennessee on Thursday.

The team made the move in wake of continued offensive struggles, and promoted quarterbacks coach Nathaniel Hackett to offensive coordinator.’s Ian Rapoport reported a disconnect betwen Olson and Bradley, some stemming from a “lack of focus” on running the football.

Jacksonville is now 2–5 and sits last in the AFC South.
