Now that Jaguars owner Shad Khan said he wasn’t making any coaching changes at the moment, it’s safe for head coach Gus Bradley to follow suit.

A day after an embarrassing loss to the Titans which dropped his record to 14-41, Bradley told reporters he wasn’t going to make any changes to his coaching staff.

Via Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Bradley’s answer to a simple question about the possibility of changes to his staff was: “No.”

The Jaguars could certainly justify offering someone up, even if it wasn’t Bradley. They’re 2-5 and the offense has failed to make any strides after showing potential last year.

They punted on all five possessions in the first half, and trailed the Titans 27-0 at the break. They’ve only scored 47 points in seven first halves this season. There were also more penalties, after they lost control and had two players ejected last week.

Bradley said they had a “good team meeting today. . . . There’s never an excuse for not playing with great effort and we will not and cannot tolerate the lack of discipline or playing under control.

“It was a very honest meeting. They clearly know the expectations and what’s ahead of them.”

And for the next nine weeks at least, they’ll have the same cast of coaches in front of them.
