Doug Pederson had his hands full at the start of the 2022 season, cleaning up the mess of the prior season, but he did an exceptional job, leading the Jaguars to their first playoff appearance since 2017.
Doug Pederson NFL Career Record
Doug Peterson has a 51-45-1 record as a head coach, spanning six seasons.
Pederson came to Jacksonville as a Super Bowl champion with the Eagles and is an immovable icon etched in Philadelphia sports lore. A Super Bowl victory over Tom Brady with a backup quarterback in Nick Foles, including going for it on fourth down with a trick play, will do that.
The following two seasons, he squeaked into the playoffs with 9-7 seasons largely plagued by injuries.
After his 2020 Eagles’ collapsed in the wake of lofty expectations, Pederson was the fall guy. Many believe that he was dismissed in more of a power struggle due to the front office’s influence over his coaching staff. Still, nonetheless, he offered championship expertise on the coaching market.
Pederson elected to take a year off to regroup while still getting paid by the Eagles and he re-entered the coaching circuit leading into the 2022 season and landed with Jacksonville.
Pederson was handed a franchise quarterback in Trevor Lawrence despite leading a team in distress after the tumultuous tenure of Urban Meyer a year prior. He was able to lead the Jaguars to an AFC South title in his first season leading Jacksonville.
