Urban Meyer Has Landed In Jacksonville

Videos by OutKick

Urban Meyer appears ready to become the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the team is already rolling out the front door mat carpet for the legendary college coach. Meyer was spotted by Jacksonville media at Cecil Airport exiting a private jet and whisked away in a Cadillac SUV.

A deal with the Jags seems imminent. Pete Thamel reported Thursday that Meyer had left his job at Fox Sports “to become the next coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.”

Three football coaches who have won college national titles and the Super Bowl: Jimmy Johnson, Barry Switzer, and Pete Carroll.

Adam Schefter reported Thursday that the two sides are “in advanced talks to see if they can finalize a deal, per league sources. They met again Wednesday.”

  1. It’s the perfect fit for Urban and the Jags. He will show the team what it takes to win, be tough and competitive. He’s a psycho, no doubt. That’s what Jacksonville/the Jags need. No more “Mr. Rogers” mentalities at the helm. It’s time to rebuild the culture and reset the standard. The city is ready for it.

    Jacksonville/the Jags have everything that a guy Meyer’s age/situation could want: low-key vibes, beach, river, expectations not too high, NO income tax, and he’s getting PAID. From a purely football perspective, the NFL is more like college football now than it ever has been, so it’s the perfect time to bring Meyer over. NFL (and football generally, now) is all about pairing the right QB with the right coach. If you’re a Jags fan, the Urban/Trevor pairing is about as ideal as it gets, especially in such a short period of time. Add 10 more draft picks (just this year) and the most cap space of any team in the NFL, to the youngest team in the NFL ripe for grooming and improvement, and I think Urban is the perfect guy to get it done.

    If nothing else, Meyer (and Lawrence) spark the city, and he will leave Jacksonville in much better position when it’s time for a successor (cause of course, I wouldn’t expect the flake to stick around too long). Win/win and well done by Kahn to get this done.
