‘Let’s get to work’: Reaction from Jaguars hiring Doug Pederson

Jacksonville Jaguars fans are reacting this morning to the news the Jags finally have a new coach, and he has an impressive resume! We're expecting the team to officially introduce Doug Pederson as the new head coach later today.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jaguars ended their lengthy search for a head coach when they announced the hiring of Doug Pederson late Thursday night.

They’d been without a permanent head coach since firing Urban Meyer early in the morning of Dec. 16.

So, while many fans on social media said that they wanted Byron Leftwich, what has been the reaction on Pederson?

The most important one comes from quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

Bucky Brooks, former NFL player and current analyst.

Kevin Clark, writer/podcaster with The Ringer and Spotify.

Armando Salguero, former Miami Herald writer, current writer for Outkick.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

Pete Prisco, former Jaguars beat writer and current NFL writer for CBS Sports.

And Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry is (not surprisingly) “all in.”
