Black Monday is underway in the NFL.
Shurmur won nine games in two seasons, finishing this one 5-11.
“We really did not win enough games, and we’re not competing next week,” Shurmur said Sunday in the wake of a 24-10 loss at Pittsburgh. “I was never really worried about [next season], and I have no regrets.”
In Jacksonville, Jaguars owner Shad Khan said it’s time for the Jaguars to “start a new chapter.”
“We’re not looking back,” Khan said in a written statement. “I made it clear from Day One that we pledge nothing less than to deliver the first Super Bowl championship to Jacksonville.”
