When I woke up this morning, I had no idea I’d be walking into the facility with an interim Head Coach. This morning Coach Del Rio was relieved of his duties as the Head Coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. I’m still in shock that it had to happen right now, given we have five games still remaining on the schedule. This is obviously a very unfortunate and uncomfortable situation, not for just our organization and team, but for Jack Del Rio and his family.
I know I speak for my entire team when I say that we have nothing but respect and love for Coach Del Rio. Personally, I’m now in my sixth year as a Jacksonville Jaguar. In 2006, Coach Del Rio anchored an organization that gave me my first opportunity at doing what I love to do at the highest level possible. He’s always treated me like a man and respected me as such- for that I am greatly appreciative!
