The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired general manager Dave Caldwell following their 10th straight loss on Sunday, which marked a third consecutive season of double-digit losses.
Caldwell had been serving as general manager since 2013 and during that tenure has seen only one winning season, posting a 39-86 record during his tenure and losing 10 or more games in every season with the exception of 2017.
The Jags lost to the Cleveland Browns 27-25 on Sunday, which dropped their record to 1-10 on the season.
“I’ve met with Dave Caldwell to express my appreciation for his service to the Jacksonville Jaguars as our general manager,” Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in an official statement. “Dave was exceptionally committed and determined to bring a winner to Jacksonville, but unfortunately his efforts were not rewarded with the results our fans deserve and our organization expects. Our football operation needs new leadership, and we will have it with a new general manager in 2021.”
Trent Baalke, the team’s director of player personnel, will serve as the interim GM through the end of the season, and head coach Doug Marrone and his staff will continue to serve the team through the rest of the season, as it appears that the team will explore a new head coach as well.
