JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Joe Cullen could have bailed on the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The defensive line coach had an offer to leave the Jaguars this month and become defensive coordinator at Boston College. The move would have reunited Cullen with one of his closest friends, new Boston College head coach Steve Addazio, and taken Cullen back to where he grew up.
The decision was difficult.
But Cullen opted to stay in Jacksonville even though the Jaguars (2-13) are dealing with the worst season in franchise history and are surrounded by uncertainty regarding the future of the front office and the coaching staff.
Cullen says, ``it hasn't been the best of years, but I want to see this thing get turned around.''
