JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley has left the team following his father's death.

Bradley headed home to Zumbrota, Minn., on Monday to be with his family, turning interim coaching duties over to secondary coach DeWayne Walker. Bradley's father, Roy James Bradley, died Sunday night following a lengthy illness. He was 85.

Gus Bradley is expected to rejoin the team in London, possibly as early as Wednesday.

The Jaguars (0-7) are flying to London later Monday and spending the week there before playing defending NFC champion San Francisco.

Walker has head coaching experience. He spent the last four seasons as head coach at New Mexico State.

Walker says, "I'm going to sit in the chair for maybe a day and a half."
