Former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has been linked to the Jacksonville Jaguars, but another strong suitor remains in the mix.
According to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, Meyer has “spoken” with the Los Angeles Chargers about their head coaching vacancy as well. This comes on the heels of a report that Meyer may be frustrating the Jaguars in their own coaching search.
It does not sound like there’s been a formal interview between the Chargers and Meyer, though one may be on the way. Especially if things really are sort of sticky between Meyer and the Jaguars.
“Moving onto an interview would suggest that the momentum that appeared to be pushing him to the Jaguars has hit a snag and that Meyer is a real option to take over in Justin Herbert’s second season,” wrote Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.
Of course, landing with the Jaguars would likely mean the chance to coach surefire No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence, the quarterback out of Clemson.
Chargers? Jaguars? Back in college? Broadcast booth? Meyer has proven to be a winning coach, but the sports world will just have to wait to see where he winds up next. In the meantime, we may as well let the rumors and reports fly.
