Jacksonville Jaguars appointed Gus Bradley as their new head coach on Thursday.

Bradley, who has been Seattle Seahawks' defensive coordinator for the past four seasons, takes over from Mike Mularkey, sacked last week by new Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell after a disastrous 2-14 season.

"I am very proud to accept the offer to be the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars," Bradley said in a statement.

The Seahawks had the tightest defense in the NFL this season under Bradley, allowing just 15.3 points per game.

Seattle's season ended on Sunday with a 30-28 loss to Atlanta in the second round of the playoffs.
