ESPN Report: Gene Smith will be out
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars are putting the wraps on the worst season in franchise history and appear to be ready to bring Gene Smith's run as the General Manager to an end.
The Jaguars will finish the season with at least a franchise worst of 13 losses. That is enough to beat the expansion year 4-12 record. Action Sports Brent Martineau is in Nashville covering the game and forwarded this communication with Smith prior to the game.
"I've never worked to save my job, just tried to do my job to the best of my ability each and every day. Let's finish the season on a positive note in Nashville," said Smith.
An ESPN report says that San Francisco Director of Player Personnel Tom Gamble and Arizona Director of Player Personnel Jason Licht are the leading candidates to replace Smith. Action Sports is reaching out to our sister station in San Francisco for the latest on this developing story. The two teams are playing each other on this final Sunday in the regular season.
