    The Jaguars plan to hire interim head coach Doug Marrone




    The Jaguars are planning to hire interim head coach Doug Marrone as the team’s permanent coach, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

    Marrone, 52, joined the Jaguars in 2014 as assistant head coach and offensive line coach after two seasons as the head coach of the Bills. Marrone went 9–7 in his final season in Buffalo before taking advantage of a clause in his contract that allowed him leave the team and still to collect his full 2015 salary while working for another team. 

    The Jaguars fired head coach Gus Bradley with two games left this year after four seasons in charge. Marrone was then installed as the interim head coach. 

    Marrone’s first head coaching job came with Syracuse, his alma mater, in 2009. He stayed with the Orange until 2012, compiling a 25–25 record. 

    The Jaguars also reportedly interviewed Tom Coughlin, Harold Goodwin, Mike Smith, Kyle Shanahan and Josh McDaniels.

    Jacksonville Beach City Government Proposing To Cancel All Future Festivals In Jax Beach




    If you spent time enjoying any of the beautiful community festivals in 2016 at the Seawalk Pavilion in Jacksonville Beach, you might want to listen up. It seems as though a certain part of the community isn’t getting down with the new wave of festivals — and they are actively seeking to shut them down.

    If you live at the Beaches or just love the festivals, we urge you to go to tonight’s 6 p.m. city council meeting, as they are discussing the future of these festivals … and the word is they are on the chopping block.

    Without these events, local businesses, vendors, musicians, sound engineers, production companies, talent buyers and more will lose work. Apart from that, the Beaches community will lose a huge piece of our culture that brings people together and showcases music, arts and businesses.

    Additionally, most of the festivals have a huge charity component. The 2016 Beaches Oktoberfest raised over $30,000 for local charities including a $20,000 contribution to Communities In Schools. The Beaches Oktoberfest also featured a Beach Clean Up which helped clean over 8 miles of coast line and dispose of over 35,000 cigarette butts after the decades most devastating hurricane.

    Jags Head Coach Released From Duty




     

    Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley is released after loss against the Texans today and the team released the following statement:

     

    I thanked Gus Bradley today for his commitment to the Jacksonville Jaguars over the past four seasons.  As anyone close to our team knows, Gus gave his staff and players literally everything he had.  Our players competed for Gus and I know they have great respect for him, as do I. 

    Gus also represented the Jaguars, the Jacksonville community and the NFL in nothing less than a first-class manner as our head coach.  That counts for a lot.  It is unfortunately evident that we must make a change.  I thought it would be best to do it immediately after today’s result so Gus can step away, relax and regroup with his family during the Christmas and holiday season. 

    Dave Caldwell agreed and will now be charged with exploring all options to hire the best head coach possible to lead what I feel is an extremely talented team and reward a very loyal and patient fan base in Jacksonville.

    DT Sen’Derrick Marks Named Jaguars 2016 Ed Block Courage Award Winner




    Jaguars eighth-year defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks has been named the team’s 2016 Ed Block Courage Award Winner, as voted on by his teammates. The Ed Block Courage Award is an annual award presented to players in the NFL, who are voted by their teammates as role models of inspiration, sportsmanship and courage.

    Over the past 24 months, Marks has seen the highs and lows of playing in the National Football League. Marks entered the final game of the 2014 season on Dec. 28 at Houston with a team- and career-high 8.5 sacks on the season. With 6:39 remaining in the game and on the season, Marks sustained a knee injury, which would eventually be diagnosed as a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).

    Following the 2014 season, Marks was selected as an alternate to the Pro Bowl, but withdrew his name after undergoing knee surgery on January 14, 2015 by Jaguars Head Team Physician Kevin Kaplan.  Marks was also recognized by his peers in NFL Network’s “Top 100 Players of the 2015,” coming in at No. 76, marking the first time the Jaguars had a defensive player appear on the list.

    “When I went down, I was just thinking about what this injury could be and what could this mean,” said Ma...   [Read More]




    Local Furious Over Re Naming of Jacksonville Suns to Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp




    Jacksonville Fl - Wednesday morning, Jacksonville Suns owner Ken Babby unveiled a new logo and name for Jacksonville's beloved minor league baseball team. The team, that's been home to Jacksonville since the 1960's hasn't seen a change like this... ever. The new team name is the "Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp" and the logo portrays a Shrimp shaped as the letter "J" (pictured below).

    “This is a high-energy, impactful, bold move,” Babby said Tuesday. “There’s certainly risk that goes along with it. There’ll be feedback and, I’m sure, some resistance. We’ve been holding on to this for a while and look forward to sharing it with the community. The tradition of the Jacksonville Suns is entrenched in Northeast Florida. It’s been known and loved. The passion for minor-league baseball in Jacksonville doesn’t change [with a new team name]. It’s just a new chapter in its evolution.” 

    As of Wednesday afternoon at 6:00pm, a petition has started circling social media. The petition already has over 6,500 signatures and demands Babby, a "outsider to the community" said one supporter, change the teams name back to the Su...   [Read More]

    Jacksonville Landing's Irish Pub




    An authentic Irish pub to settle down and have a good time is at Fionn MacCools. Located at the Jacksonville Landing under the Main Street Bridge, Fionn MacCool’s offers a family friendly Irish pub experience for everyone. I sat down with Patty Trousdell and she let me explore the history of Fionn MacCools.

    Owned by Amy McNulty; Patty’s sister, she travelled to Ireland several times and got to work with Guinness concept pubs. Amy always dreamed about having an Irish pub and wanted it to become a reality. All the materials for the restaurant were shipped from Ireland, and the restaurant opened at the beaches in 2005. The restaurant later moved to the Jacksonville Landing, opening in March of 2011, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Its current location has a community feel, with business influences, and is surrounded by great hotels.

    The executive chef of Fionn MacCools, John Walker, is the man that makes it all happen. He is a fabulous chef and makes everything in the kitchen from scratch. John started as a line cook for 4 years and worked his way up to become a sous chef. He handles high volume well on days like the Florida/ Georgia game, Tax Slayer Bowl, New Year’s Eve celebrations, St. Patrick’s Day,...   [Read More]
