Jaguars retain assistant coaches Duffner, Sullivan


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - New Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley is keeping two veteran assistants from previous regimes.

Bradley says linebackers coach Mark Duffner and receivers coach Jerry Sullivan will stay on for the team's rebuilding process.

Duffner joined the Jaguars in 2006 and has long been considered one of the franchise's top assistants. Sullivan came out of semi-retirement last season and was instrumental in the development of young receivers Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts III.

Duffner has 38 years of coaching experience, including 16 in the NFL. His resume includes stops at Cincinnati (1997-2002) and Green Bay (2003-05).

Sullivan has 40 years of coaching experience, including 20 in the NFL. He also has worked for San Diego (1992-96), Detroit (1997-2000), Arizona (2001-03), Miami (2004) and San Francisco (2005-10).

Last week, Bradley hired Jedd Fisch as offensive coordinator and Bob Babich as defensive coordinator.
