Jacksonville Jaguars Fire GM Gene Smith

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired general manager Gene Smith after four disappointing seasons, including the worst year in franchise history.

Owner Shad Khan made the announcement Monday.

Coach Mike Mularkey could be next. Khan is waiting to decide Mularkey's fate until he hires a new general manager, which could happen this week.

Mularkey failed to make the Jaguars (2-14) better in his first season, and Jacksonville set a franchise record for losses this season and dropped eight games by 16 or more points.

Smith had been with the team since its inception in 1994, working his way up from regional scout to general manager. He was the architect of the roster since 2009, compiling a 22-42 record and failing to acquire a single player who made the Pro Bowl.
