So how long will Gus Bradley last as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars?

The Jaguars have hired Bradley, the former defensive coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks under Pete Carroll, as their new head coach.

Before working in Seattle, Bradley was the linebackers coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2006-2008.

Before he showed up in Seattle, the Seahawks were the 30th ranked defense. The past two seasons, they were 9th and 4th respectively in terms of yards allowed, and 7th and 1st in fewest points allowed.

This appears to be a very solid hire for the Jaguars, whose former head coach Mike Mularkey lasted only one season as head coach.

Will they give Bradley enough time to turn around this disaster of a team?

The Jaguars haven't had a winning record since 2007. In each of the past two seasons, their record has gotten worse, culminating in a franchise record low 2 wins in 2012.

They drafted Blaine Gabbert with the 10th overall pick of the 2011 draft, and now it looks like he's not capable of being their franchise QB, so that might be the first thing they have to find.

How long will Bradley last with the Jaguars? Will he turn it around? Or will the coaching merry-go-round continue in Jacksonville?
