Bradley has been a defensive coordinator for four different teams, including the new job with the Colts. He spent time as a DC for the Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Chargers and, most recently, the Las Vegas 2021. In between the Seahawks and Chargers jobs, Bradley was the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
He went 14-48 in three full seasons plus 14 games before being fired. The Jaguars came in third in the AFC South in each of his full seasons. He will now take over the defensive duties for a Colts team that missed the playoffs with a 9-8 record in 2021-2022.
