The Jacksonville Jaguars will retain Gus Bradley as head coach for the 2016 season.

Shad Khan released a statement Tuesday confirming that Bradley will return for the final year of his contract. 

"It's evident to see how far we've come in many aspects of our game, and Gus deserves a lot of credit for that progress," Khan said. "It's also evident the considerable work that remains to be done to be where we expect to be at this time next season, which is well above where we stand today. And Gus understands that. ...

"I expect his coaching staff and team to respond favorably to this news in preparation for Houston on Sunday and then begin thinking about what more they can provide next season. We have high ambitions."

Bradley has a 12-35 record over three seasons.
