Jacksonville Jaguars Coach Fired After Losing to Houston
The owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars has fired head coach Jack Del Rio, after the team’s 20 to 13 loss to the Houston Texans. It was the last straw for Del Rio, who leaves with an overall losing record covering nine years.
The loss to Houston was pivotal in more ways than one. It brought the Jaguars’ record to 3 and 8 and it was the last game for coach Jack Del Rio.
It’s doubtful that anyone in Jacksonville will miss Del Rio, because fans have been clamoring for his head for years, especially after the team’s 5-11 finish in 2008.
The Jacksonville game was also a major turning point for the Texans.
They lost their backup quarterback to a season ending injury, and with only a rookie third string QB on the bench, they’re searching desperately for an experienced QB to take them the rest of the way in the best season the team has ever had.
They’re trying out several experienced free agent QB’s this week, but for now, rookie T. J. Yates is The Man, and he’ll start against Atlanta next Sunday.
