  • The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Jay Gruden as their offensive coordinator, head coach Doug Marrone announced Wednesday morning. “Coach Gruden is one of the brightest offensive minds in football and I’m pleased to welcome him to the Jacksonville Jaguars,” Marrone said in a release. “In going through the search process, it was important to me and our staff to identify a candidate who had a clear and concise vision for how to lead our offense and how to get the most out of our players and assistant coaches. I believe that Coach Gruden is the right person for what we need right now and the direction that we want to take our offense. In his last stint as an offensive coordinator for three seasons in Cincinnati, he had great success with the Bengals and played a key role in their three postseason berths from 2011-13. During the interview process, it became very clear that Coach Gruden learned a lot from his experience as a head coach and he’s ready to get back to work.”  Last week, the Jaguars and the team’s previous offensive coordinator, John DeFilippo “agreed to part ways.”  Gruden, 52, has 26 years of coaching experience, including 16 seasons in the NFL. He served as the head coach of the Washington Redskins from 2014-19 after serving as the Cincinnati Bengals’ offensive coordinator from 2011-13.  Gruden led the Redskins to an NFC East division title after being led by QB Kirk Cousins, who threw for 4,166 yards and 29 TDs. Gruden helped Cousins earn Pro Bowl honors in 2016 with the Redskins’ record-breaking offense, which posted team records in total net yards (6,545), net passing yards (4,758) and yards per play (6.40), ranking in the top three in the NFL in all three categories.
  • Terry Jones, a member of the Monty Python comedy group, has died, his agent said Wednesday. He was 77. The Welsh actor’s family said in a statement that he died Tuesday evening following 'a long, extremely brave but always good-humored battle with a rare form of dementia, FTD,” according to the BBC and The Associated Press. “We have all lost a kind, funny, warm, creative and truly loving man whose uncompromising individuality, relentless intellect and extraordinary humor has given pleasure to countless millions across six decades,” the statement read. With Eric Idle, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman and Terry Gilliam, Jones formed Monty Python’s Flying Circus, whose anarchic humor helped revolutionize British comedy. Jones appeared in the troupe’s TV series and films including “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and “The Life of Brian.” After the group split in the 1980s, Jones went on to host several documentaries and write historical non-fiction, CNN reported. He also wrote the screenplay for the 1986 musical fantasy film “Labyrinth,' according to the news network. “His work with Monty Python, his books, films, television programmes, poems and other work will live on forever, a fitting legacy to a true polymath,” family members said in their statement Wednesday. “We hope that this disease will one day be eradicated entirely.” Jones announced in 2016 that he had been diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia, a neurological syndrome that progressively impairs a person’s ability to communicate, according to The New York Times. Jones is survived by his wife, Anna Soderstrom, and children Bill, Sally and Siri, according to the statement. Fans and friends took to social media to remember Jones. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
