LA Chargers set to hire Gus Bradley as defensive coordinator

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers intend to hire former Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley as their defensive coordinator.

The Chargers confirmed Saturday that Bradley's arrival was imminent.

The 50-year-old Bradley went 14-48 in nearly four seasons in charge of the Jaguars, who fired him last month with two games left in the season. Although Jacksonville never won more than five games a season in his tenure, Bradley retained his reputation as a top defensive coach with the Jaguars, who finished sixth in the league in total defense this season.

Bradley coordinated Seattle's defense from 2009-12, coaching current Chargers nose tackle Brandon Mebane.

New Chargers coach Anthony Lynn beat out San Francisco and other suitors for Bradley's services.

Lynn also is retaining Ken Whisenhunt as the Chargers' offensive coordinator.
