Gus Bradley won’t join 49ers, agrees to go to Chargers

Jan 20, 2017 at 7:12 PM--


Former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley has agreed to become the defensive coordinator of the Los Angeles Chargers, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.


The former Jaguars coach originally only wanted to join the San Francisco 49ers if they hired Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tom Cable to be their new head coach. The 49ers are expected to hire Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. The 49ers upped their offer to Bradley and the decision reportedly came down to the Chargers and the 49ers.

In 2011 under Bradley, the Seahawks defense ranked 7th in points allowed, 9th in total yards allowed, 11th against the pass, and 15th against the run. In 2012, the unit ranked 1st in points allowed, 4th in total yards allowed, 6th against the pass, and 10th against the run.

This comes after the 49ers inquired about possibly bringing back Vic Fangio, who served as the team's defensive coordinator under Jim Harbaugh and currently holds the same role with the Chicago Bears. Since he is currently under contract with Chicago, the Bears said no.

A long time ago, I thought the most unprecedented event in the sports world was Game 3 of the 1989 World Series getting pushed back ten days due to an earthquake. Sports will find a way to endure - through earthquakes, war, a global pandemic and if professional football is played before a couch-bound audience. The San Francisco 49ers will play sloppy football Sunday, but the other NFL franchises will join them. Remember it's been nine months - if not longer - since players were on the field in a live football contest. Forty-Niner head coach Kyle Shanahan will have his men ready for Sunday afternoon, even if the game turns into a sludgy swamp of mental errors, blown coverages, and missed assignments. Indeed, the other 31 coaches in the league are
