Raiders Hire Gus Bradley As New Defensive Coordinator

The Raiders have announced the hiring of former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley as the teams’ new defensive coordinator.

Bradley just wrapped up his time as DC with the Chargers, who last week fired the coaching staff along with head coach Anthony Lynn.

The coach compiled a record of 14-48 in 62 games as head coach of the Jaguars before he was canned with two games left in the 2016 season with the club at 2-12.

Last season Bradley helped the Bolts finish in the top 10 in the NFL in total defense (343.4 avg.) and ranked ninth in the league against the pass (223.6 avg.).

Bradley helped the Los Angeles defense produce four players that were selected for Pro Bowl honors, among them defensive ends Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram III, who combined for six Pro Bowl nods.
