The Action Sports Jax team has confirmed that the Jacksonville Jaguars have named Tom Coughlin as Executive Vice President of Football Operations.

The news about Coughlin came after the Action Sports Jax team confirmed that interim coach Doug Marrone would become the team's new head coach.

The team also extended the contract of team General Manager Dave Caldwell. Coughlin and Marrone will each have three-year contracts and Caldwell gets a two-year extension on his contract.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan released a statement about the personnel moves:

“I have confidence that one day soon we’ll look back on today’s news as the moment that inspired and ultimately established the Jacksonville Jaguars as a football team that wins, week to week and season to season,” Jaguars owner Shad Khan said.  “I am honored to welcome Tom Coughlin back to Jacksonville, where winning was customary under his leadership.  I know he expects the same in his return to head our football operations, and that’s good news for us and Jaguars fans everywhere.  The extension of Dave Caldwell’s contract speaks to his excellent work thus far and the continued importance of complementing our talented and promising roster.  
 
“I am particularly enthused to introduce Doug Marrone as our new head coach.  Doug is a strong football man in every respect and offers us qualities that will serve us well in all facets of the team, from the meeting rooms to game day and much more.  The results will speak for themselves in time, but with Tom coming in to join Dave and Doug, there is no question the Jacksonville Jaguars are a stronger football team today.”
 
A news conference with Marrone, Coughlin and Caldwell is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday. Action News Jax will air the news conference and stream it on ActionNewsJax.com and on Facebook.
