2. Meyer will have the best for the Jacksonville jaguars
Once his players have the best resources and welfare, he will push them. For that to happen, he will need the best possible coaching staff. He says he’s in the process of evaluating the current staff and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him keep a few coaches if he thinks they’re going to help the team win.
Meyer says he blames coaches before players and that’s how it should be done. How can you ask their players to give their best when they don’t have adequate coaching and proper development? This sounds like common sense, but this is more common than you would think. Former Las Vegas Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther and former Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia come to mind. They always pointed fingers at players for their lack of execution and never shoulder the responsibility nor the blame. Hence, it’s not shocking they both are currently unemployed.
3. He’s asking for all the help he can get.
After having so much success in college, Meyer could take a ‘my way or the highway’ approach. Instead, he will rely on people around him, one of those will be Super Bowl-winning coach Jimmy Johnson. The fact he’s open to adapting and knows the NFL is very different from the college game. He says he’s been studying the salary cap and understanding roster management. He wants to be’ well-educated’ in something that is going to be critical to their success.
He is aware times are changing, and coaching the way he did in college is not the best thing moving forward, and mentioned there’s going to be complete transparency. He added that those that adapt have success and those that don’t fail.
