Urban Meyer is interested in the Jacksonville Jaguars head-coaching job.
Urban Meyer is targeting the Jacksonville Jaguars head-coaching job and has had exploratory discussions with intermediaries about the Jacksonville Jaguars job, according to Kely Rowland of The Blade.
Meyer has built a strong resume coaching at the college level. Under his watch, the Florida Gators won the BCS National Championship Game twice, one in 2006 and the other one in 2008. He then stepped down as their head coach in 2010 due to health reasons and temporarily retired before taking the Ohio State head coaching job in 2012.
Meyer led the Buckeyes to their eighth national championship title in 2014 and was their head coach until 2019, when he retired, citing his health once again as the reason for his decision.
Keep in mind New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who has won five Super Bowls, has a close relationship with him, consults with him multiple times throughout the season, and values his opinion. Merely being friends with Belichick shouldn’t be a reason why an organization hires someone, but the fact one of the greatest head coaches in NFL history listens to what Meyer speaks positively about the Toledo native.
