JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley did not travel with the team to London on Monday because he was with family members after his father died late Sunday night.
Defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker is serving as the team's interim head coach until Bradley rejoins the team, which is expected to be on Wednesday. The Jaguars (0-7) play the San Francisco 49ers (5-2) on Sunday at Wembley Stadium.
In an interview with the Florida Times-Union last summer, Bradley talked about the influence his father had on him and his five siblings.
"My dad demanded a certain way of how things should be done," Bradley said. "He really cared about how we performed, not only in school but athletics. He took great interest in what we did but rarely did we get home to him saying, ‘Hey, you did a great job.’ He drove us and would say we were never ‘there.’ But he wasn’t negative."
Roy James Bradley was 85 years old.
