The Jacksonville Jaguars have appointed Seattle Seahawks defensive co-ordinator Gus Bradley as their new head coach.

Bradley replaces Mike Mularkey, who was fired last week after the Jaguars finished the 2012 season with a 2-14 record that was tied for the worst record in the NFL.

The 46-year-old began his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he filled a couple of roles before joining the Seahawks and helping them reach the play-offs on a couple of occasions.

"It was just a matter of time before Gus Bradley became a head coach in the NFL and the Jacksonville Jaguars are extremely fortunate that Gus will be on our sidelines for many years to come," said general manager Dave Caldwell, who was hired last week, said in a statement.

"Gus more than met every criteria we insisted on from our new head coach, and his intangibles and leadership abilities are exceptional. Gus is who the Jaguars need now and in the future."

Bradley said: "(Owner) Shad Khan and Dave expect to win, and that's what I wanted to hear. That's why I am coming to Jacksonville - to win a Super Bowl."
