The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired Vice-President of Football Operations Tom Coughlin
“I determined earlier this fall that making this move at the conclusion of the 2019 season would be in everyone’s best interests but, in recent days, I reconsidered and decided to make this change immediately, Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a statement.
Coughlin was fired two days after the NFLPA informed players that an arbitrator had ruled for the union and against the Jaguars over mandatory offseason rehab procedures at the team’s facility. Leonard Fournette and Dante Fowler (now with the Rams) have said publicly that they have won their grievances and had their fines rescinded.
Cornerback Jalen Ramsey, another ex-Jaguars player now on the Rams roster, reportedly forced a trade out of Jacksonville to get away from Coughlin.
