Del Rio has been the Jaguars coach for the past 8 years and has not brought the team to victory since.
Being that Jacksonville is my hometown, my Facebook timeline blew up with celebration when everyone got word. Everyone was either like “FINALLY!”, “ABOUT TIME!”, “LONG OVERDUE!” or simply “YES!”. I actually felt bad because its never a good feeling to be fired. Especially when you’ve worked at a company, in this case team, for years. And then in his field and resume, not many openings available in the NFL or other teams wanting to add him on I’m sure.
Really wishing Jack Del Rio the best of luck!
