Jacksonville Jaguars: 3 reasons why Urban Meyer is perfect hire
The Jaguars should be excited about Urban Meyer’s arrival.
The Jaguars need to make drastic changes if they started winning games. Hiring Meyer was the first of many steps they had to make for them to change their culture. Keep in mind they didn’t bring in Meyer because of his coaching acumen. Rather, they want him to oversee a franchise transformation, and they will give them everything he needs to do so.
Owner Shahid Khan said the ‘Jags’ have a ‘coach centric’ approach and he and the general manager will get him great players, but it goes beyond fact. The fact they are giving him the freedom to implement his vision says how much they trust him. The organization knows it takes more than one head coach to win football games and they are doing their part.
This was one of the most important decisions in franchise history and one that will have huge ramifications. If they can implement their vision, the team will be set for years. On the other hand, if they don’t fully commit, it could set them back.
This Jacksonville team currently has an abundance of cap space and draft picks, but they also have their work cut off and there’s no point in having a surplus of resources if they can’t can’t fully maximize them. Hiring Meyer will help them accomplish that.
