Urban Meyer has not made his intentions clear to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team still awaits his decision, but NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports that sources are starting to sense “frustration” from Jaguars.
“I don’t get the sense Meyer has made it clear to [the Jags] he’s willing to dive in with both feet,” Garafolo notes. “It’s more like one toe in the water.”
Besides the Jaguars, Meyer should have other options, including the Chargers. With Trevor Lawrence, the Jags are appealing. Lawrence can be a star and turn the franchise around. However, Justin Herbert is already a star and is surrounded by talent. If money and power are equal, Los Angeles is the better pick.
Meyer can also stay and grow in broadcasting, where he has been very impressive. Broadcasting provides a better lifestyle than coaching and doesn’t have the inevitable dissatisfying ending every year. Furthermore, with a profile like Meyer’s, broadcasting can be incredibly lucrative.
At some point, the Jags will stop waiting for Meyer. He’s not Bill Belichick in the NFL, and Lawrence may fit better with a younger, more innovative head coach.
Anyway, hurry up, Urban.
